Harrison Wrong to Ask Federal Government to Regulate Natural Gas

Raleigh, NC – Americans for Prosperity – North Carolina today issued the following statement in response to news that State Representative Pricey Harrison will testify before Congress next week to urge the federal government to regulate North Carolina’s energy industry.

“State Representative Pricey Harrison’s testimony before Congress next week shows her real priorities for North Carolina families,” said Dallas Woodhouse. “Instead of focusing on policies to help cash-strapped families, Rep. Harrison is supporting federal regulations that will dramatically increase the cost of energy for North Carolinians. Rep. Harrison is putting her personal politics above the best interests of North Carolina.”

“Natural gas production is a bright-spot in America’s energy generation portfolio due to the lack of federal interventions,” Woodhouse continued. “Rep. Harrison’s support for federal regulations will stifle innovation and hurt one of America’s best resources.”
