Washington: Office of the Senator Ted Cruz has issued the following news release:
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) this week sent a bipartisan, bicameral letter to U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm expressing strong support for Freeport LNG's expansion of export capacity at their liquefaction and export terminal in Brazoria County, Texas. The letter's co-signers include Rep. Henry Cuellar, Rep. Randy Weber, Rep. Filemon Vela, and Rep. Vicente Gonzalez.
In the letter, the members state:
"The value of natural gas to the Texas and U.S. economy cannot be overstated. LNG exports have and will continue to encourage investment in U.S. natural gas production, which in turn generates billions of dollars in new investments, benefiting local communities, producing tax revenues, and creating jobs... Projects like Freeport LNG's export capacity-increase request greatly benefit the nation and the global energy community, and we ask that you move quickly to grant such request."
