U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) issued the following statement after President Trump decided to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Change Agreement:

“I welcome President Trump’s announcement to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Change Agreement,” Luetkemeyer said. “The Paris Agreement was just another example of the Obama Administration circumventing Congress to push a politically driven agenda at the expense of American workers and taxpayers. Earlier this year, I reintroduced legislation, the No Tax Dollars for the United Nations’ Climate Agenda Act, that would prevent any taxpayer dollars from being used to the fund the United Nation’s International Panel on Climate Change, Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Green Climate Fund, or any of the Climate Investment Funds. These slush funds have cost American taxpayers over $1 billion under the Obama administration. Thankfully, under President Trump, we have already been able to pass a government funding bill to prevent this egregious abuse of taxpayer dollars. I look forward to working with the Trump Administration to make this prohibition permanent.”
