Boost Energy Exports and Show U.S. is Serious about Growth, Free Trade
America has rewritten the rules of the global energy economy, thanks in large part to the tremendous surge in production of shale oil and natural gas. And now there is a growing body of evidence that exporting our natural abundance of energy resources will provide even greater benefits in job creation, economic growth and long-term energy security.
To make this happen, we first need to get Washington lawmakers to ease outdated trade restrictions and regulatory delays for oil and liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports. That’s good for Oregon with its export oriented economy and ever closer ties to burgeoning Asia-Pacific markets. Action in Washington would show crucial international trading partners that our support for free trade isn’t just hollow rhetoric.
