Energy Independence is as follows
Because of its profound effect on the economic future of our state, I support the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
During construction, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline will create more than 17,000 jobs. Once in operation, the lower energy costs resulting from the pipeline could support the creation of thousands more jobs in our region moving forward.
The Atlantic Coast Pipeline will generate millions of dollars in new local, state and federal tax revenue, year after year. And energy delivered by the pipeline will fuel the continued growth of our state's homebuilding, new business development, agriculture and tourism.
For all those reasons, I support the construction of this far-reaching and impactful project. And I sincerely hope you will do the same.
