Press Release

Rep. Peter DeFazio (OR-04) today released the following statement on the Executive Actions on climate change President Joe Biden signed this week:

“After four long years, the Trump Administration’s relentless climate assault is finally over,” said Rep. DeFazio. “With President Biden at the helm, we can get to work tackling the existential threat of climate change and enact policies that end our dependence on fossil fuels. I’m encouraged by the actions the White House has already taken, such as rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, halting construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, and blocking drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and I look forward to working with this administration to pass comprehensive legislation that invests in green technologies and transforms our transportation system to affect real and long-term change.”
