McConnell Statement on Obama Administration International Climate Plan

WASHINGTON, D.C.U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell issued the following statement regarding the Obama administration’s unworkable Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) in preparation for global climate talks in Paris:

“Even if the job-killing and likely illegal Clean Power Plan were fully implemented, the United States could not meet the targets laid out in this proposed new plan. Considering that two-thirds of the U.S. federal government hasn’t even signed off on the Clean Power Plan and 13 states have already pledged to fight it, our international partners should proceed with caution before entering into a binding, unattainable deal.”
