INGAA president appreciates AFL-CIO support for pipelines

Don Santa, president and CEO of the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America, today expressed his appreciation to the AFL-CIO for its support of pipelines and its recognition of the important role pipelines have to the American economy.

“We appreciate the AFL-CIO for its support of natural gas and oil pipelines and its acknowledgement that development of midstream infrastructure ‘creates good jobs and builds America’s industrial base.’

“As the AFL-CIO, notes in its executive statement,  pipeline construction and expansion of pipeline infrastructure was estimated in an INGAA Foundation 2012 report  as likely to create, on average, 125,000 jobs a year between now and 2035.
