Shea-Porter Statement on Governor Sununu Decision Not to Join U.S. Climate Alliance

June 7, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) released the following statement regarding Governor Sununu’s announcement that New Hampshire will not join the United States Climate Alliance:

“I’m deeply disappointed by Governor Sununu’s decision not to join the bipartisan group of governors who remain committed to combatting climate change, harnessing the economic promise of renewable energy, and defending their states’ international standing. It would be a serious mistake for New Hampshire to abandon our proud nonpartisan legacy as an environmental leader. On behalf of the majority of Granite Staters who want action on climate change to avoid negative impacts on our environment, our economy, and our health, I call on the Governor to reconsider this hasty decision.”
