WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, Vice Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s executive order rolling back Obama era regulations aimed at reversing the effects of climate change:

“This executive order represents more political posturing from a president unwilling to recognize scientific facts. It rolls back progress we made under President Obama, puts the climate and public health at risk, all while bailing out the president’s friends in the coal industry.
