The U.S. has and can continue to produce energy responsibly, and we need our political leaders to put our national security and economy, and the needs of consumers first. Gov. Cuomo’s refusal to tap New York’s energy potential has put the state’s economy on a reckless path and ignores the needs of New York families. New Yorkers deserve the chance to join in the American energy renaissance and reap more of its benefits.

The overarching lesson is that public policy should serve the public. How many winters must New Englanders endure inadequate supply and unreasonably high costs before elected officials from town councils all the way up to the statehouses put consumers first? Here in Washington, trade groups including API have urged Congress to prioritize infrastructure spending, but it’s just an exercise if state and community policymakers stand in the way of needed infrastructure construction.

While the recovery in Florida – as well as the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast – will continue over weeks and months, developments indicate the state’s fuel supply remains a top priority and is being served with the help of industry and state and local officials. This is encouraging, given Irma’s Sunday landfall. The historic resiliency of our energy supply system is a part of that – the ability and flexibility of markets to adjust and help areas where fuel product needs are acute.

The humanitarian effort underway after Hurricane Harvey is showing Americans at their best. Communities across Texas have been battered by storm, with record-setting floods damaging or destroying more than 300,000 homes in the southeast part of the state. In Houston, home to 2.3 million people, the challenges of recovery are proving to be quite unique.

As families in one of the nation’s biggest corporate hubs began the arduous process of rebuilding, many have been able to turn to their employers for assistance. Energy companies have set up stations for employees to pick up emergency supplies, they’ve sent work crews to rip out drywall from flooded homes, and they’ve even provided helicopters to deliver water to families when the city of Beaumont’s water service failed.

The safety, health and protection of people, the environment and communities are the top priorities for the natural gas and oil industry. Energy companies have thousands of employees and their families living in the areas impacted by Harvey. They were among those whose homes have been under water in Houston or destroyed in Port Arthur. And they are among the Americans who have been generously and courageously helping their neighbors by getting medical supplies to children in need, by clearing debris, collecting and distributing donations, and even showing up with an inflatable swan
