American Gas Association (AGA) President and CEO Dave McCurdy testified before the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources about the opportunities for, current level of investment in, and barriers to the expanded use of natural gas as a fuel for transportation.
“Developing the market for natural gas vehicles enhances our energy security, our competitiveness, and encourages the expansion of transportation fueling infrastructure and technologic advances. We urge the Congress, and the Administration, to ensure that we set policies that set us on the path to capture these benefits to our nation,” said McCurdy.
Other witnesses on the panel included Westport Innovations Inc. Senior Adviser Dr. Michael Gallagher, Chrysler Group LLC Director of Regulatory Affairs Reg Modlin, Oak Ridge National Laboratory Corporate Fellow Dr. David Greene, and IECA President Paul Cicio.
