PITTSBURGH, Pa. – Following Senator Pat Toomey’s announcement today that he will not be seeking reelection in 2022, the Marcellus Shale Coalition’s president David Spigelmyer released this statement:
“Pennsylvania is fortunate for Senator Toomey’s principled pragmatism as well as his decency and thoughtfulness. Senator Toomey’s bipartisan approach to common sense and market-focused policies has enabled our Commonwealth’s continued energy, economic and environmental successes.
“We especially appreciate Senator Toomey’s recognition and support for Pennsylvania’s energy workers as well as our state regulators, who share a commitment to safety and strong regulations. He’s also been an outspoken champion for ensuring that we use more natural gas here at home to revitalize our manufacturing sector while working to expand energy trade in a way that benefits America and our key global allies.
“We’re grateful for the senator’s service to Pennsylvania and look forward to working closely together throughout the remainder of the term on policies that recognize the important role natural gas plays in driving long-term, sustained economic and environmental progress.”
