LANGHORNE, PA - Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-08) released the following statement Sunday in advance of the Administration's pending decision regarding the Paris Climate Agreement:

"I urge the Administration to keep the United States in the Paris Climate Agreement. Last month, I joined members of both parties in urging the President to remain in the agreement and to keep our seat at the table, and our words are worth repeating: ‘The world's leading nations must work together... It is imperative that we maintain our seat at the table in global discussions of how to address the threats posed by climate change.'  I share Secretary of Defense Mattis' view that this challenge must be addressed proactively and head-on, and I agree with both our Secretary of State and Secretary of Energy that retaining our seat at this table is vitally important. A renegotiation is a better option and will benefit our nation in the long run.”
