Dear Governor Shapiro and Honorable Members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly,
This year marks the commencement of a new administration and the first year of service for more than one-quarter of all members of the Senate and House. On behalf of Pennsylvania’s leading business and industry associations, we would like to extend our warmest congratulations on your successful elections and wish you the best in the years ahead. We sincerely appreciate your desire to serve and we wish to be a resource as you make key public policy decisions impacting the private sector – the success of which will lead to economic growth and prosperity for Pennsylvania and its residents.
As you begin this new chapter of Pennsylvania’s history, we collectively encourage you to work in a bipartisan manner to foster creative, productive public policy that ensures a robust, reliable, and affordable energy supply to our Commonwealth’s businesses and families. By removing barriers to investment and creating opportunities for both businesses and individuals, we can position our state to meet the demands of the 21st century global economy.
Through bipartisan policymaking, we have the unique chance to support policies that promote domestic energy production and its use in legacy and innovative industries. This will result in a dynamic marketplace with greater opportunities for our citizens, many of whom have departed for other states in search of opportunity. Pennsylvania is too rich in resources and people to continue to decline in population.
By working together, we can advance public policy that responsibly leverages our vast energy resources to encourage both legacy and emerging industries to grow here in Pennsylvania and as a result, create a more prosperous and inclusive economy while combating inflation and improving our national energy security. We have an exciting opportunity before us, and we look forward to serving as a partner and resource to move Pennsylvania forward.
