Manufacturers comment on California's leadership role in climate change

 June 1, 2017 Sacramento, CA -- California Manufacturers & Technology Association president Dorothy Rothrock made the following statement today regarding California's climate change role after President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. would pull out of the Paris Climate Change Accord:

"California has an ambitious goal to reduce climate change emissions by 2030 no matter what program is in place for other jurisdictions. However, with the announcement by President Trump to withdraw from the Paris Climate Change Accord, California has a new reason to provide meaningful leadership by adopting a market-based approach to reduce emissions that will protect manufacturing jobs and keep costs affordable for consumers."
