(SOMMERS):
"AS I MEET WITH INDUSTRY-LEADERS AND UNION-WORKERS, IT'S CLEAR THAT OHIO VALUES THE GOOD-PAYING JOBS THAT ARE TIED TO AMERICAN ENERGY--ALONG WITH THE ESSENTIAL ROLE THAT OUR INDUSTRY WILL PLAY, IN DRIVING THE ECONOMIC RECOVERY.  NOT ONLY IS THE STATE ONE OF THE COUNTRY'S TOP PRODUCERS OF NATURAL GAS, BUT OHIOANS ALSO CARE A LOT ABOUT RESPONSIBLE ENERGY-DEVELOPMENT--AND ABOUT THE ECONOMIC BENEFITS THAT OUR INDUSTRY PROVIDES.  THIS INCLUDES SUPPORTING 420-THOUSAND OHIO-JOBS.  AND, THE AVERAGE OIL-AND-GAS WORKER IN OHIO EARNS 70-PERCENT MORE THAN THE AVERAGE WORKER.  REGARDLESS OF THE OUTCOME OF THIS ELECTION, IT'S CRITICAL THAT OUR LEADERS IN WASHINGTON TAKE A BALANCED, PRAGMATIC APPROACH TO AMERICA'S ENERGY-FUTURE:  POLL AFTER POLL SHOWS THAT OHIO'S VOTERS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT HOW RESTRICTIVE ENERGY-POLICIES WOULD ELIMINATE JOBS, AND INCREASE HOUSEHOLD ENERGY-COSTS--WHICH IS THE LAST THING THAT WE NEED TO DO, DURING A PUBLIC-HEALTH AND ECONOMIC CRISIS.  HOWEVER, THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT WE DON'T HAVE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN AMERICAN ENERGY-PRODUCTION AND ADDRESSING CLIMATE-CHANGE; OHIO HAS PROVEN THAT WE CAN DO BOTH.  IN FACT, EMISSIONS FROM THE STATE'S POWER-SECTOR DROPPED BY MORE THAN 40-PERCENT, FROM 2005 TO 2017--LARGELY THANKS TO NATURAL GAS.  WE ALL WANT A CLEANER FUTURE--AND OHIO'S ENERGY-WORKERS AND NATURAL GAS ARE A CRITICAL PART OF IT."
