API plans rallies for energy industry

TOPICS: In the news
A leading oil industry trade association will host gatherings around the country early next month to rally opposition to proposed energy legislation that the group says would hamper U.S. economic recovery and cost jobs.

"This is a critical time. Americans want to know the government is working on constructing solutions to the challenges that we all face: jobs and economic recovery," American Petroleum Institute President Jack Gerard said at a news conference announcing the API'S Rally for Jobs events.

"But from our perspective from an energy perspective - we don't think that's happening."

The effort will kick off with three simultaneous events Sept. 1 in Houston, Beaumont and Corpus Christi. Subsequent rallies are planned for Ohio, New Mexico, Illinois and Colorado

The goal is to mobilize API members, industry supporters and the public around the topics of energy, jobs, taxes and economic development, and call on Congress to "focus on putting unemployed Americans back to work," Gerard said.
