-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
THE "ILLINOIS COMMERCE COMMISSION" WILL SOON CONSIDER THE "DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE" OPTIMIZATION-PLAN--TO INCREASE CRUDE-OIL DELIVERY FROM THE "BAKKEN" IN NORTH DAKOTA, HERE TO ILLINOIS.  CRAIG STEVENS, A SPOKESMAN FOR "GROW AMERICA'S INFRASTRUCTURE NOW", SAYS THAT OPTIMIZING THE PIPELINE WOULD IMPROVE AMERICA'S ENERGY-READINESS--WHILE ALSO DELIVERING JOB-OPPORTUNITIES, TO ILLINOIS' SKILLED-UNION WORKFORCE...

(STEVENS):
"
THE 'DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE' HAS OPERATED SAFELY, SINCE 2017--AND HAS BEEN A KEY DRIVER IN THE GROWING SUCCESS OF THE 'PATOKA ENERGY TERMINAL', IN MARION COUNTY.  BY OPTIMIZING THE PIPELINE, THE 'PATOKA ENERGY TERMINAL' WILL CONTINUE TO SERVE AS ONE OF THE NATION'S MOST-IMPORTANT ENERGY-HUBS.  OPTIMIZATION WILL BRING NEW JOBS, [AND WILL] STRENGTHEN OUR NATION'S ECONOMY AND OUR NATIONAL SECURITY--ALL WHILE ADDING IMPORTANT REVENUES, TO THE LOCAL TAX-BASE.  ENERGY-INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS--LIKE THE 'DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE' AND THE 'PATOKA TERMINAL'--ARE CRITICAL ASSETS THAT HELP OUR NATION BE MORE ENERGY-INDEPENDENT.  WE HOPE THAT THE 'ILLINOIS COMMERCE COMMISSION' AGREES TO SUPPORT 'DAKOTA ACCESS'-OPTIMIZATION."

(CLOSE):
THE COMMISSION IS SCHEDULED TO HOLD A HEARING ON THE PROPOSAL IN EARLY MARCH.  FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT "GAIN-NOW"-DOT-ORG.
