FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WASHINGTON, District of Columbia, United States, March 30, 2023 –
Amy Andryszak, INGAA President & CEO, issued the following statement on House passage of H.R. 1- Lower Energy Costs Act—
“The Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) appreciates that the U.S. House of Representatives prioritized energy and permitting reform issues in the first major piece of legislation in the 118th Congress. H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act, would expedite permitting timelines and judicial reviews for energy infrastructure – statutory changes needed to build projects from pipelines to powerlines that would make it possible to meet this country’s energy, economic, security, and climate-related goals.
“INGAA supports the provisions in the Lower Energy Costs act that enable efficient and consistent development of energy infrastructure in order to continue delivering the benefits of natural gas to the American people. The passing of H.R. 1 advances the conversation about bipartisan federal permitting reform legislation, and we look forward to collaborating with Senators on both sides of the aisle to achieve that goal.”
INGAA represents the U.S. natural gas pipeline industry. INGAA’s members deliver clean, abundant, affordable natural gas throughout North America and operate approximately 200,000 miles of pipelines that serve as an indispensable link between natural gas producers and consumers.
