- Urge the removal of obstacles to increased domestic energy production.
- Climate Change – Reasonable and responsible federal action to reduce greenhouse emissions is warranted. Efforts to reduce greenhouse emissions must be made in concert with other energy/environmental goals, including the increase of natural gas supplies and minimizing price impact on natural gas consumers.
- Fully support the highest-possible FY13 federal appropriations for the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), urging appropriators to fund at $5.1 billion, all in base according to statue or new formula. New formula fairly distributes LIHEAP to all 50 states, thereby enabling states and their community action agencies to provide energy assistance to the elderly, disabled and other qualified beneficiary households.
- Natural Gas Production – Support incentives to expand natural gas supply from shale, offshore and onshore to help meet the rising demand and reduce price volatility for American Consumers.
- Oppose legislation that promotes smart-grid appliances at the expense of high-efficiency natural gas appliances.
- Federal law currently contains tax credits for natural gas vehicles; these credits are set to expire and a one-year extension bill is anticipated this year. Support extending these provisions to encourage the use of natural gas in vehicles.
- Urge Congress to lift moratoria and authorize environmentally compatible exploration for fuel including but not limited to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), the Outer Continental Shelf and other federal lands now closed to drilling.
- Support provisions such as tax incentives that encourage the private sector's efforts to improve energy efficiency and conservation and its investment in alternative and renewable energy sources such as wind and biofuels, nuclear power, hydropower, clean coal, solar energy and geothermal energy.
- Pipeline safety – Support the adoption of a balanced new federal pipeline safety bill which aspires to provide a greater public trust in the nation’s pipeline network by installing additional automatic safety equipment where feasible, enhancing system integrity management, improving incident notification procedures, and increasing penalties for non-compliance.
- Support development of the Keystone Pipeline Project.
