Statement on Signing the America's Conservation Enhancement Act
Today, I have signed into law S. 3051, the "America's Conservation Enhancement Act" (the "Act"). Section 104(b)(2)(A) of the Act would require a Task Force established within the executive branch to engage with foreign governments to achieve certain specified ends. This provision interferes with my exclusive authority under Article II of the Constitution to conduct the Nation's foreign affairs. Accordingly, my Administration will treat it as advisory and non-binding.
DONALD J. TRUMP
NOTE: S. 3501, approved October 30, was assigned Public Law No. 116-188. An original was not available for verification of the content of this statement.
