 AGA Applauds Introduction of the American-Made Energy Act of 2008   


Washington, DC – The American Gas Association (AGA) applauds Representative Mike Ross (D-AR) for his introduction of the “American-Made Energy Act of 2008.”  This important legislation will increase the production of domestic fuel sources (this includes natural gas, coal, nuclear power), promote the development of biofuels, support alternative/renewable electricity, and increase energy efficiency. 

“Rep. Ross clearly understands that we need legislation like this to move us one step closer to sound, comprehensive energy policy for our nation.  He recognizes the importance of ensuring America’s energy security, economic growth and environmental well-being,” said AGA President and CEO David Parker.

“This proposed legislation goes a long way to provide important, new provisions for all energy sources for a diverse, comprehensive energy mix.  AGA looks forward to working with Rep. Ross and Congress as they consider this legislation. Natural gas is expected to play a major role in new climate change policies, making increased access to natural gas supplies a priority in order to meet the country’s growing clean energy demands.”

The American Gas Association, founded in 1918, represents more than 200 local energy companies that deliver clean natural gas throughout the United States. There are more than 71 million residential, commercial and industrial natural gas customers in the U.S., of which 94 percent — over 68 million customers — receive their gas from AGA members. Today, natural gas meets almost one-fourth of the United States' energy needs.
