Gallego’s statement on President Obama’s action plan to address climate change

Gallego’s statement on President Obama’s action plan to address climate change  

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX Assistant House Minority Leader Ruben Gallego, D-Phoenix (District 27), released the following statement on President Barack Obama’s comprehensive action plan to deal with climate change.

“The president’s plan to address climate change shows both leadership and commitment to our country’s future. This plan will reduce carbon pollution, prepare for impacts of climate change and make us a world leader on this issue. For Arizona, it means we should set the standard in economic development in the arena of cleaner, more efficient energy. By doing this, we will be able to create more jobs in the energy industry. These jobs will stay here and not be shipped overseas. We should utilize this plan to invest in cleaner energy so that we protect the legacy our children will inherit and so that our economy can compete at a more global level.”
