Jack Gerard letter to House regarding H.R. 4909 (May 18, 2016)
The American Petroleum Institute (API) strongly supports Section 1090 of H.R. 4909, the Fiscal Year 2017 National Defense Authorization Act, which will streamline the Department of Energy regulatory process to consider liquefied natural gas (LNG) export permits.
U.S. LNG exports will create American jobs, significantly strengthen the global energy market, and help enhance our national security interests abroad. The LNG exports provisions, adopted by voice vote during the House Armed Services Committee markup in April 2016, are based on H.R. 351, the LNG Permitting Certainty and Transparency Act, which the House passed by a bipartisan vote of 277 to 133 in January 2015.
