Reschenthaler’s Statement on Joining President Trump for Pittsburgh Visit
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Guy Reschenthaler (PA-14) released the following statement on joining President Trump at the Shale Insight Conference in Pittsburgh, PA. Congressman Reschenthaler is traveling on Air Force One to attend the event with the president.
“I’m honored to join President Trump as he visits the hardworking men and women who are driving innovation in the American shale energy industry. The president has been a tireless supporter of Pennsylvania energy, and thanks to his leadership, we are seeing tremendous job creation and unprecedented wage growth. Natural gas production, and the jobs that go with it, continue to thrive under the pro-growth policies of the Trump Administration. Oil and natural gas production in Pennsylvania isn't just about energy, it’s also about the jobs in industries like plastic manufacturing that go with it.
“The Trump Administration and I continue to stand up against Democratic calls to ‘ban fracking’ and implement policies like the ‘Green New Deal,’ both of which would devastate our local economy and force employers to shut their doors. I am grateful to President Trump for his visit today, and for all he has done to make southwestern Pennsylvania a great place to live and work. I look forward to working with the administration to continue the Pennsylvania energy and manufacturing boom.”
