America's Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA) Executive Vice President for Government Affairs, Frank J. Macchiarola, released the following statement on the House Energy and Power Subcommittee's energy bill:
"We are encouraged by the House Energy and Power Subcommittee's recognition of the need for critical energy infrastructure and reliability planning, as well as its continued commitment to promote workforce development for the energy and manufacturing sectors. Chairmen Upton and Whitfield and Ranking Members Pallone and Rush should be commended for the thorough and deliberative process they have undertaken to develop this legislation. We are, however, disappointed that the subcommittee draft excluded legislation providing greater certainty and transparency for LNG export applicants.
"Earlier this year, the House passed LNG export legislation with significant bipartisan support. Omitting these provisions misses an opportunity to leverage such bipartisan support to promote the use of our abundant natural resources for greater energy diplomacy and strengthened energy security. A robust export policy is essential to building the meaningful 'Architecture of Abundance' this committee is working so hard to foster. We will continue working with the committee as the process moves forward and are hopeful that policies advancing LNG exports will be restored."
