Expanding domestic energy is 2016 priority, US Chamber president says

January 14, 2016

The US Chamber of Commerce is making domestic energy expansion one of its top 2016 priorities, its president announced. It also intends to fight runaway government regulation, push for more American trade globally, and promote entitlement reform discussions, Thomas J. Donohue said in his 2016 State of American Business address.

"We can and should be developing all kinds of energy and discriminating against none," Donohue said. "We have untold amounts of American oil and gas, and unleashing the power of our own energy will put our economy on a much stronger footing."

While prices will inevitably rise and fall, the nation can count on global energy demand to dramatically increase, Donohue said on Jan. 14.
