WASHINGTON, D.C. — American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers released the following statement regarding the passage of H.R. 1.
H.R. 1 is an investment in U.S. energy security. Fuel and petrochemical manufacturers, and the energy infrastructure companies that make it possible to get our feedstocks and products from point A to point B, welcome the additional clarity and regulatory certainty this legislation will provide. We are especially appreciative of Representative Dan Crenshaw’s legislation in H.R. 1 to protect U.S. fuel refineries and their ability to produce gasoline here. Through the inclusion of this provision Congress will correct a glaring problem in the proposed updates to EPA’s Risk Management Plan that would impose massive costs on the refining industry and potentially threaten a significant share of U.S. fuel production capacity without any measurable safety benefits.
The American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) is the leading trade association representing the makers of the fuels that keep us moving, the petrochemicals that are the essential building blocks for modern life, and the midstream companies that get our feedstocks and products where they need to go. We make the products that make life better, safer and more sustainable — we make progress.
