Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement after President Trump signed an Executive Order directing his administration to roll back a number of key climate change regulations issued under the Obama Administration:


“America always moves forward, not backwards on progress,” said Larson. “I strongly oppose this Executive Order, which flies in the face of the overwhelming scientific evidence that global warming is occurring and that we must protect the planet from the catastrophic effects of climate change.  The United States should be a leader, not a polluter.”
