Accounting and Finance


The American Gas Association sponsors numerous accounting committees for AGA full and limited members. The committees have primary responsibility to advocate positions to be taken with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). We will also take positions on accounting issues to with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC).

In addition to taking advocacy positions, the accounting committees sponsor a number of conferences, committee meetings, workshops, seminars, webinars and publications.
Fiscal Responsibility

America's economic future is threatened by a fiscal and budget crisis unprecedented in our nation's history. The trajectory of our national debt is unsustainable and threatens America's economic competitiveness, job growth, standard of living, global standing and influence.

Keeping dividend tax rates low has been a key advocacy priority for AGA, and our members.
