Daines Disagrees With Renewed Call For Climate Emergency Declaration
U.S. Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., has issued the following statement on reports that President Biden is working to issue a “climate emergency.”
“President Biden needs to wake up and address the real emergencies Montanans are facing under his Administration. Montanans are being crushed under the weight of the highest inflation in over 40 years, gas that is nearly $5 a gallon, American energy production is being stifled as Biden looks to Saudi Arabia instead, and the Southern Border is wide open to illegal immigrants and illegal drugs that are devastating Montana communities. So no, we aren’t facing a climate emergency — we’re facing an economic, inflation, energy and Southern Border emergency,” Daines said.
Daines noted, inflation hit 9.1 percent in June, 85 percent of Americans think country is going in wrong direction and that the migrant encounters at southern border hit a new record in May.
