WASHINGTON, D.C. , September 7, 2018 | Andre Castro (202-225-6105) | comments

U.S. Representative Bill Flores (R-Texas) issued the following statements regarding the August jobs report and the House passage of H.R. 4606, the Ensuring Small Scale LNG Certainty and Access Act:

August Jobs Report
"Another strong jobs report proves that our economy continues to strengthen thanks to our bold, pro-growth tax reform and regulatory reforms. This latest report shows wages increasing at a rate not seen in almost a decade, along with continued job growth and unemployment remaining near historic lows. It is important that we continue working to build upon this great economic news and foster more growth and opportunities for hardworking American families."

Ensuring Small Scale LNG Certainty and Access Act
"The United States is one of the top producers of natural gas in the world. As such, we have the ability to promote this abundant, environmentally friendly energy resource to our allies. The Ensuring Small Scale LNG Certainty and Access Act expedites the approval of small-scale shipments of LNG exports to emerging markets in the Caribbean, Central America and South America. By modifying the current regulatory regime to encourage small-scale exports, we are creating more open, transparent and competitive markets for natural gas that will in turn increase domestic production, create American jobs and further power our 21st century economy."
