Legislation Can Speed U.S. Manufacturing Projects, Job Creation
WASHINGTON (July 10, 2013)
The American Chemistry Council (ACC) issued the following statement today in response to passage of the Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform Act (H.R. 1900) by the House Energy and Power Subcommittee:
"We commend Chairman Whitfield and Congressman Pompeo for helping to get American energy from where it is produced to manufacturers who will use it to create jobs. Dozens of chemical companies want to invest in the United States, and many of their projects will require infrastructure linking natural gas production to facilities elsewhere. This legislation will streamline the pipeline permitting process and accelerate the
national economic benefits of shale gas
. We applaud Subcommittee members for approving the bill and urge swift passage by the full House."
