Domestic and Renewable Energy Production
In the face of inflation and global pressures on oil production, it is critical that action be taken to support our domestic oil and gas industry and the workers and businesses that supply them. NSSGA encourages policies that allow greater investment in the domestic production and supply of energy resources to normalize the price of energy inputs. Aggregates and industrial sand producers face volatile and ever-changing fuel inputs that hamper our ability to reliably produce materials. NSSGA supports an all-of-the-above energy strategy, that includes developing energy deliverables like wind, solar, hydropower and other renewable sources. We urge expanded investments in renewable energy infrastructure that will improve the environment and create thousands of jobs, while also providing our country with a diverse energy industry. These investments will incorporate multiple sectors and ensure energy resources are reliably and efficiently delivered to millions of Americans. Efforts to reinforce the strained energy sector will help minimize future dependence on foreign producers and maintain America’s position as a global energy producer.
