PMTA joins coalition urging lawmakers to ensure reliable energy supply

The Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association joined a coalition of business and industry organizations across PA urging Governor Josh Shapiro and state lawmakers to ensure a robust and reliable energy supply for the state’s businesses and consumers.

The letter advocated for legislative action that would create effective public policy to ensure the state maintains a reliable energy supply.

Highlighting the absence of calls for new taxes or tax increases in Shapiro’s recent budget address, the coalition said the state’s energy industry plays a key role in bolstering the state’s economic landscape.

“Pennsylvania is a global energy leader that is home to abundant natural resources, industry thought leaders, and cutting-edge innovators,” the coalition members wrote.

Additionally, the coalition said it was confident that a partnership between industry and government through public policy can enhance the state’s global energy position.

“Through bipartisan cooperation, we have the opportunity to develop and advance policies, such as permitting reform, that promote domestic energy production and its use in legacy and emerging industries,” the letter said. “The Commonwealth’s energy success story is still being written, and we all have an opportunity and responsibility to ensure current and future chapters in this story are defined by themes of innovation, global leadership, and economic growth.”

The letter was signed by the American Petroleum Institute – Pennsylvania, Associated Pennsylvania Constructors, Consumer Energy Alliance, Keystone Contractors Association, Manufacturer & Business Association, Marcellus Shale Coalition, National Federation of Independent Business, Pennsylvania Aggregates and Concrete Association; Pennsylvania Builders Association; Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, Pennsylvania Chemical Industry Council, Pennsylvania Forest Products Association, Pennsylvania State Grange, Pennsylvania Independent Oil & Gas Association, Pennsylvania Manufacturers’ Association, Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association, and Pennsylvania Septage Management Association.
