Following yesterday’s recommendations from the Governor’s Pipeline Task Force, the Pennsylvania Energy Infrastructure Alliance applauded their work and was referenced in an overview of the recommendations – quoting PEIA member’s Trish McFarland and Abe Amoros about the importance of pipeline infrastructure investments in Pennsylvania.
Here is a snapshot of the article:
“We recognize this is the first step in a long process. But even as this process continues, it shouldn’t slow or diminish the safe, responsible development of critical pipeline infrastructure already in the works,” said PEIA co-founder Trish McFarland, president of the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce.
“New pipeline projects are delivering both short-term employment benefits from construction, as well as long-term economic benefits from increased access to abundant, more affordable energy resources,” McFarland added.
Several PEIA members testified personally during the task force’s public hearings or submitted comments as the final report was being drafted.
Abe Amoros, another co-founder and state legislative director at the Laborers International Union of North America, praised Quigley “for acknowledging in his opening remarks that there is broad support for these projects because of the tremendous economic and job-creation benefits they generate.”
“For thousands of workers across our commonwealth, these projects are not just pipelines; they are also lifelines to family-supporting jobs,” Amoros said.
