Posted October 26, 2009
Members of the Oil and Natural Gas Industry Labor-Management Committee, which includes API along with fifteen labor unions, have written to senior members of Congress encouraging them to support tax policies that will protect and encourage the development of quality U.S. jobs, while at the same time fortifying our nation's energy and economic security.
In letters sent to Sens. Max Baucus and Charles Grassley, chairman and ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee and Reps. Charles Rangel and Dave Camp, chairman and ranking member of the House Ways and Means Committee, the Committee said avoiding tax increases on the oil and natural gas industry is "not only good tax policy--it is good energy policy."
