(OPEN):
HOW CAN THE U-S DECREASE ITS DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL--WHILE, AT THE SAME TIME, CREATING JOBS AND BOOSTING THE ECONOMY?  ACCORDING TO U-S STEEL CHAIRMAN AND C-E-O, JOHN SURMA [AS IN "BURMA" AND "SURMISE"], BY IMMEDIATELY PASSING REPRESENTATIVE TIM MURPHY'S BIPARTISAN "INFRASTRUCTURE JOBS AND ENERGY INDEPENDENCE ACT"...

(SURMA):
"
THE BILL WOULD EXPAND ACCESS TO AMERICA'S DOMESTIC OIL AND NATURAL-GAS RESOURCES--AND USE THE REVENUE THAT IS GENERATED TO REBUILD AMERICA'S TRANSPORTATION-SYSTEM.  FULLY UTILIZING OUR NATURAL-GAS RESOURCES IS VITAL TO REDUCING ENERGY-COSTS FOR DOMESTIC MANUFACTURERS--INCLUDING THE STEEL-INDUSTRY--WHICH SUPPORTS MORE THAN ONE-MILLION DIRECT AND INDIRECT JOBS IN THE ECONOMY.  ALSO, THE STEEL-PIPE AND -TUBE PRODUCTS THAT U-S STEELMAKERS PRODUCE ARE INTEGRAL TO BOTH THE COLLECTION AND THE TRANSMISSION OF NATURAL-GAS.  SO, USING MORE NATURAL-GAS WOULD MAXIMIZE KEY MARKETS FOR OUR STEEL-INDUSTRY.  BEYOND THAT, THIS BILL WOULD ALSO DEDICATE VALUABLE FUNDING TO REBUILD OUR NATION'S TRANSPORTATION-INFRASTRUCTURE.  PASSING THE BILL WOULD BE A KEY STEP FORWARD IN ADDRESSING OUR NATIONAL ENERGY- AND TRANSPORTATION-CHALLENGES--WHILE ALSO CREATING GOOD-PAYING MANUFACTURING-JOBS.  GIVEN THE PERSISTENT UNEMPLOYMENT-RATE OF OVER NINE-PERCENT, CONGRESS NEEDS TO ACT NOW."
