Our nation, and especially our region, is in the midst of an energy revolution that has already delivered an immense amount of economic opportunity and growth. A manufacturing renaissance cultivated by an abundant supply of clean, affordable natural gas has rejuvenate businesses across Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.
As demand for natural gas continues to grow, we need to ensure that our energy resources are transported in the safest, most efficient way possible. Research, supported by the U.S. Department of Transportation, has undisputedly shown that pipelines are safer and more reliable than other forms of transportation such as rail or truck delivery.
This coalition represents a diverse group of entities from the agriculture, business, and labor sectors that all strongly embrace the idea that our region must invest in safe and reliable pipeline technology. Projects like the Rover Pipeline have the ability to bolster our local economies and deliver a reliable supply of affordable energy to our homes and businesses for generations to come.
