Make Plans to Connect with Members of Congress During the August Recess

By Dave Schryver posted 15 days ago


Both the U.S. House and Senate will be in a month-long recess until September 9th. The August recess is a great opportunity to invite your Senator or Representative, while they are in their home district, to tour your natural gas system and learn about its operations. Informing and educating members of Congress is critical as many issues important to publicly owned natural gas systems, such as the reauthorization of the Pipeline Safety Act, will be up for discussion this coming fall. 

If you are planning to set up meetings, do not hesitate to reach out to APGA staff for assistance on key issues such as the reauthorization of the Pipeline Safety Act and the reform of Section 5 of the Natural Gas Act.
