KICKING KERRY TO THE CURB: Chip Roy Intros Bill to Defund 'Climate Tyrant' John Kerry

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.17.22

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) has introduced a bill to defund climate tyrants like John Kerry. Roy says Kerry wastes time and taxpayer money flying around the world getting the U.S. involved in commitments that kneecap American energy.

The bill is officially titled The No Taxpayer Funding For Climate Zealots Advancing Radical Schemes Act,’ or the No Taxpayer Funding For CZARS Act. The bill is co-sponsored by GOP Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA), Thomas Massie (KY), Lauren Boebert (CO), Scott Perry (PA), Mary Miller (IL), Louie Gohmert (TX), Andy Biggs (AZ), and Greg Steube (FL).

Roy provided a statement to The Daily Wire about the bill.

“Hardworking Americans are struggling every day to afford gas and electricity because of the disastrous energy policies peddled by hysterical fools like John Kerry,” Roy said.

“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,” Roy told The Daily Wire.

According to the Daily Wire, “It is unclear how much tax-payer money Kerry and his staff are allocated. In March, the Boston Herald requested the information via a Freedom of Information Act request, and Kerry’s office told the newspaper they could not submit the requested data until October 2024.”

“Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no Federal funds may be used for the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, including for salary, administrative, and travel expenses of the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and for any other activity of the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate,” Roy’s bill reads.

“Enough,” Roy concluded in his statement to The Daily Wire. “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.”

Roy shared news of the bill on Twitter.
