#TimetoBuild | Approve Atlantic Sunrise
Pennsylvania continues to produce record volumes of natural gas, but insufficient pipeline capacity severely limits consumer access to the state’s natural gas supplies. Atlantic Sunrise would connect abundant Marcellus Shale gas with hungry markets in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast while creating thousands of jobs and transforming the economic future for the Commonwealth. Since the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued the Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity for the project, support has grown – and our leaders in Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania are starting to get the message: The time to unleash the economic power of American energy is here, and the time to build is now! I believe it's Time To Build Atlantic Sunrise for the following key benefits: * Generate approximately $1.6 billion in additional wages, revenues and investments to the regional and state economies of Pennsylvania and Virginia; * Support 8,000 and an associated $870 million in economic value during the construction period; * Provide about 7 million homes an abundant supply of affordable energy; * Generate $18 million in state taxes across counties the project intersects. I urge your administration to approve all the necessary permits to move Atlantic Sunrise forward without further delay.
