Energy

Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District is home to some of the most abundant natural gas and energy resources in the entire world. Thanks to home-grown energy resources produced in central and northeastern Pennsylvania, the United States is a net exporter of natural gas and is set to be a net exporter of energy. On top of that, our district has seen significant economic gains as a result of our energy resources. There are also significant national security benefits of the United States being able to supply its own energy and energy to our allies. That’s why it is incumbent upon lawmakers to continue to incentivize the growth of our home-grown energy industry, work with employers to build downstream businesses, and continue the great community partnerships seen across Pennsylvania.
