Manufacturers Support a Pro-Growth Energy Policy and Open Markets

By January 10, 2013Energy

Natural gas is vitally important to manufacturers and job creation, as well as achieving affordable energy in this country. Through the NAM’s Affordable Energy Campaign, we are focused on ways to increase our vast domestic onshore and offshore energy resources with balanced and sensible regulation.

Regarding Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), the NAM’s official policy position is as follows:

The dramatic increase in the domestic natural gas resource base has reduced the likelihood of the need for significant LNG imports. Some now believe the United States could eventually become a net exporter of natural gas. An adequate supply of natural gas is needed to meet the growing demand of the U.S. manufacturing sector in a recovering economy. The NAM strongly supports federal and state policies to accommodate growth in domestic natural gas production. We further believe abundant domestic natural gas resources can fuel a manufacturing renaissance in the United States. The NAM fundamentally supports free trade and open markets. We support a natural gas policy process that is open, transparent and objective.
