Apr 23, 2012 Issues: Economy and Jobs, Energy, Tax Reform

LITTLE ROCK – Congressman Tim Griffin (AR-02), a member of the Congressional Natural Gas Caucus, issued the following statement after meeting with local officials in Conway:

“I remain adamantly opposed to any increase in the severance tax on natural gas.  Natural gas is clean-burning, abundant and has fueled our economy and resulted in thousands of new Arkansas jobs.  We shouldn't do anything to discourage exploration and put those jobs at risk.”
