“Political rhetoric has clouded the importance of Pennsylvania’s energy production and delivery to the state’s families and small businesses. Our diverse energy portfolio, along with policies that will improve infrastructure, play a critical role in the accessibility to affordable energy throughout the Commonwealth.  That’s why it’s important that CEA’s Campaign for America’s Energy helps to remind our elected leaders of the opportunity Pennsylvania’s energy resources provide and to understand how energy needs can be met while we also protecting our environment.”

– Gene Barr, CEO Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry President
