FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WASHINGTON, District Of Columbia, United States, February 7, 2023 —
Amy Andryszak, President and CEO of the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) issued the below statement following President Biden’s 2023 State of the Union Address:
“The Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) appreciates President Biden’s acknowledgement that the United States will continue to rely on natural gas for years to come and share his commitment to leading the world in creating a clean energy future. However, to achieve that goal and to realize the full benefits of the Inflation Reduction Act, we need immediate action on permitting reform.
From pipelines to power lines, enacting bold and meaningful permitting reform is the only way we’ll advance domestic energy infrastructure projects that will lessen consumer costs, deliver reliable energy to homes, and help meet our nation’s emissions reduction goals. As you said, Mr. President, we’ve got to finish the job. INGAA is committed to working with the administration and Congress to bring permitting reform across the finish line so we can build much needed energy infrastructure projects, including natural gas pipelines and related infrastructure.”
