(Washington) –Natural Allies for a Clean Energy Future released a new video today of former Congressman Kendrick Meek (D-FL) on how energy policy must be a bipartisan issue – and natural gas is a vital partner in supporting communities, particularly those communities that have been historically left behind, creating job opportunities and investment opportunities that will allow Americans to compete on a global stage.
“Natural gas is going to make America strong in blue and red states. When it comes down to the bottom line economically in this country – it has to be a bipartisan issue. You can’t have the Democrats on one side and Republicans on another. Climate change is impacting vulnerable communities in rural and urban America and in a big way.
“When it comes down to expanding natural gas – it’ll provide greater economic opportunities for individual families, for businesses and communities. It’s going to take leadership to speak up on behalf of those communities that have been left behind. In this whole debate on energy, affordability, opportunity – you can’t keep doing the same thing expecting different results. That’s the reason why it’s important that natural gas is a part of many solutions of getting us to a stronger economic standing.”
–Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-FL)
