Today Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA), Bill Shuster (R-PA), Jim Costa (D-CA) and Tim Walz (D-MN) introduced their work on developing smart, bipartisan energy legislation in 112th Congress. The Infrastructure Jobs and Energy Independence Act will help enhance America’s energy independence through energy efficiency, conservation and innovation.
Dave McCurdy, president and CEO of the American Gas Association (AGA), said, “We are particularly pleased to see the focus on diversification of transportation in this bill. AGA recently launched a collaborative effort with America’s Natural Gas Alliance to enhance our national energy security by promoting the development of natural gas vehicles and infrastructure throughout North America. Clean, domestic, abundant natural gas has great potential in the transportation sector, and I am glad to see the House not only recognize this great potential, but act on it as well.”
