WASHINGTON (June 22, 2017) – The American Chemistry Council (ACC) issued the following statement in support of H.R. 2910, the ‘Promoting Interagency Coordination of Natural Gas Pipelines Act,’ authored by Rep. Bill Flores (R-Texas). 

“We commend Congressman Flores for his commitment to improving the regulatory permitting process for natural gas pipelines. This legislation will help speed the delivery of energy resources from production sites to American manufacturers who will use them to create jobs.

“Robust domestic natural gas supplies have spurred historic levels of new chemical industry investment in the U.S. Since 2010, our companies have invested $185 billion across 310 projects, including new facilities, expansions and restarts. The new activity could add 821,000 jobs to our economy by 2025. New energy infrastructure is needed to fully realize the shale gas opportunity.

“H.R. 2910 promotes better coordination among the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and other agencies involved in the review of proposed interstate natural gas pipelines. We urge prompt passage by the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the full House.”

ACC was among 20 groups signing a letter of support for H.R. 2910.
