June 2-- U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., a member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, today released the following statement regarding President Trump’s announcement that the United States would withdraw from the Paris climate accord:
“The United States is one of the strongest countries in the world in our commitment to high environmental standards across all industries, including power production.
"Unfortunately, the Paris climate deal was yet another regulatory overreach by the Obama administration and should have been put forward for the advice and consent of the Senate.
"I will continue to work on commonsense approaches to energy production and the environment.”
