May 5, 2008 - According to NAM, Senator Peter Domenici's Domestic Energy Production Act of 2008 is a step toward comprehensive, domestic energy policy needed for long-term health of manufacturing and U.S. economy. Bill would help diversify fuel, lower cost of energy, create jobs, and increase America's energy security. Manufacturers welcome legislation because it would encourage environmentally responsible domestic energy production on Outer Continental Shelf and Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Expanded Domestic Production Will Increase America's Energy Security

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 1, 2008 - The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) today said Sen. Pete Domenici's (R-NM) "Domestic Energy Production Act of 2008," is an important step toward a comprehensive, domestic energy policy that is needed for the long-term health of manufacturing and the U.S. economy.

"This new bill would help to diversify our fuel, lower the cost of energy, create jobs and increase America's energy security," said NAM President and CEO John Engler. "Manufacturing is the most energy intensive sector of the economy. U.S. manufacturers are disproportionately affected by energy price instability and consume roughly one-third of our nation's available supplies. Rising energy prices threaten the well-being of all Americans - consumers and businesses alike.

"Manufacturers welcome Sen. Domenici's legislation because it would encourage more environmentally-responsible domestic energy production on the Outer Continental Shelf and Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and accelerate the production of advanced energy technology and alternative resources such as renewable fuel," Engler said.

"We will work with Sen. Domenici to advance these types of practical solutions to America's critical energy needs," Engler concluded.

The National Association of Manufacturers is the nation's largest industrial trade association, representing small and large manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the NAM has 11 additional offices across the country. Visit the NAM's award-winning web site at for more information about manufacturing and the economy.
