Governor Hogan Spokeswoman on Paris Accord: “Not an Action the Governor Would Have Taken”

Many of Maryland’s elected officials rebuked President Donald J. Trump‘s decision Thursday to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord.

Virtually every member of the state’s congressional delegation weighed in with reaction minutes after Trump walked out of the Rose Garden.

The decision also prompted some rare, if tepid criticism from Republican Gov. Larry Hogan, who has generally been hesitant to discuss Trump’s policies.

“This is not an action the governor would have taken,” Hogan spokeswoman Amelia Chasse said in a statement. “Governor Hogan remains committed to preserving Maryland’s natural resources for future generations.”
