Washington, D.C. — Today, U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) applauded President Donald Trump’s decisive commitment to advance environmental protection and safeguard a high quality of life for all Americans:


“I commend President Trump for the important message on environmental protection he delivered yesterday. President Trump is correct in realizing that heavy-handed government regulations often cause more problems than they solve, and that we must approach climate change head-on with American innovation and entrepreneurship. 


American innovation is the cornerstone of our economy, and harnessed correctly, we will be able to use our nation’s immense research capabilities to combat climate change, while simultaneously turbocharging the American economy. Innovation-friendly policies, many of which I have outlined in my Green Real Deal, present market-friendly approaches to our climate crisis, and will help create new generations of energy and technological entrepreneurs.


I am proud to work with President Trump, as well as my colleagues across the aisle, to pursue viable solutions to climate change,” said Rep. Gaetz.

Congressman Gaetz has been a fierce advocate and leading voice in the Republican Party, as well as the U.S. House of Representatives, for his stance on environmental conservation and addressing climate change issues. In April 2019, Congressman Gaetz unveiled his “Green Real Deal,” a plan to address climate change by harnessing the power of free markets, embracing technological innovation and entrepreneurship, and cutting excessive governmental red tape
