ACC Welcomes Sen. Murkowski's Energy Blueprint

WASHINGTON, Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Chemistry Council released the following statement in response to Sen. Lisa Murkowski's (R-AK) release of an energy blueprint that calls for a dramatic boost in the production of energy resources and new energy efficiency initiatives:

"Senator Murkowski's energy blueprint recognizes that domestic energy production has become the engine driving America's economy by producing thousands of new jobs and spurring billions of dollars in new manufacturing investment, including the potential for over $55 billion in new chemical industry capital investment.

"ACC has long-endorsed a comprehensive energy strategy that encourages and develops all of America's own energy resources, from increased production of natural gas to innovations that contribute to greater energy efficiency.  Many of these approaches are captured in Senator Murkowski's energy initiative, and we hope this all-of-the-above approach to energy is prioritized in the new Congress.

"Senator Murkowski's blueprint offers a strategic and substantial portfolio of ideas in support of its objective to develop an abundant, affordable, clean, diverse and secure energy future. The framework advocates for boosting domestic energy production, while continuing to fund scientific research on advanced energy technologies.

"The blueprint also supports modernizing federal energy policies to boost innovations in energy efficiency - many of which are enabled by chemistry – that will result in economic and environmental benefits across the country.

"ACC applauds Senator Murkowski for her leadership in crafting this energy blueprint that provides a framework for enhancing our nation's energy security and supporting America's manufacturing renaissance."
