On Thursday, Rep. Chip Roy (TX-21) led eight of his Republican colleagues in introducing the “No Taxpayer funding for CZARS Act” to defund Joe Biden’s special presidential envoy for climate, John Kerry.
The No Taxpayer Funding for CZARS Act would prohibit federal funds from being used for any activity of the special presidential envoy for climate, including salary, administrative, and travel expenses.
Rep Roy had the following to say about the legislation:
Hardworking Americans are struggling every day to afford gas and electricity because of the disastrous energy policies peddled by hysterical fools like John Kerry.
The Biden administration’s jet-setting “climate czar” is actively destroying reliable American energy by saddling us with outrageous commitments at hypocritical climate conferences, pressuring banks not to lend to fossil fuel producers, and fighting to end oil and gas production.
Enough. If we’re going to fight for energy freedom in this country, we have to defund climate tyrants like John Kerry; my bill would do just that.
The bill’s cosponsors include Reps Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14), Thomas Massie (KY-4), Lauren Boebert (CO-3), Scott Perry (PA-10), Mary Miller (IL-13), Louie Gohmert (TX-1), Andy Biggs (AZ-5), and Greg Steube (FL-17).
