Energy: A Strength, not a Weakness

By August 30, 2007Energy

NAM President John Engler’s op-ed on the energy bills in Congress appears in Michigan newspapers today, the group with the online presence at From Energy Bills Will Hit U.S. Competitiveness:

The National Association of Manufacturers strongly supports legislation to encourage energy conservation, efficiency and development of renewable fuels. We must also make full use of our domestic energy resources, including the fossil fuels that are responsible for the generation of the vast majority of U.S. electricity.

Congress needs to use the August recess to reconsider its energy legislation, to reconnect with the real-world, energy-dependent economy that employs America’s men and women. And if Congress wants to be serious about energy reforms, it’s time our elected officials acknowledge that our nation’s vast energy supplies are an economic strength, not an environmental liability.
