“A recently released report by API New York clearly lays out what our coalition has said from the beginning, natural gas is clean, affordable and is helping lower energy bills while at the same time creating jobs across the state. In fact, according to API’s report, natural gas is powering over 4.4 million homes and more than 400,000 businesses while at the same time contributing a whopping $20 billion to New York’s economy. Imagine what would happen if our state truly embraced the benefits of natural gas? New York must lead the way when it comes to supporting clean, reliable and affordable sources of energy. And that includes building out the infrastructure necessary to ensure all of our state’s energy consumers are able to access our nation’s increasingly abundant natural gas resources.”
