(LANGLEY):
"'A-P-I' AND THE 'AMERICAN PETROLEUM INSTITUTE OF MICHIGAN' ARE LAUNCHING A NEW CAMPAIGN THAT HIGHLIGHTS THE NATURAL-GAS- AND OIL-INDUSTRY'S LEADERSHIP IN REDUCING EMISSIONS TO RECORD-LOW LEVELS; IT ALSO CALLS FOR COMMON GROUND IN THE ENERGY-DEBATE, BOTH IN 20-20 AND BEYOND.  ENERGY-INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT IS BOOSTING MICHIGAN'S MANUFACTURING-INDUSTRY--AND IS DRIVING LOCAL ECONOMIC-GROWTH.  FROM SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESSES--TO LOWERING ENERGY-COSTS, AND CREATING NEW JOB-OPPORTUNITIES--THE ECONOMIC-BENEFITS OF THE NATURAL-GAS- AND OIL-INDUSTRY ARE EVIDENT.  OUR INDUSTRY, IN FACT, CONTRIBUTES ABOUT 15-BILLION DOLLARS, EACH YEAR, TO MICHIGAN'S ECONOMY--WHILE SUPPORTING ROUGHLY 160-THOUSAND JOBS.  WHAT'S MORE, LARGE ENERGY-INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS CAN START A CHAIN-REACTION THAT ENDS UP BOTH FACILITATING THOUSANDS OF NEW JOBS--AND PROVIDING IMMENSE BENEFITS TO LOCAL COMMUNITIES.  LOWER ENERGY-COSTS CAN ATTRACT INDUSTRIAL MANUFACTURERS--WHICH CAN THEN LEAD TO MORE WORK FOR TIER-TWO SUPPLIERS, AND BUSINESSES OF ALL KINDS.  ALSO, NATURAL GAS ENABLES UTILITIES TO PROVIDE CLEAN, AFFORDABLE, AND RELIABLE ELECTRICITY, TO THEIR CUSTOMERS--WHILE ALSO REDUCING THEIR CARBON-FOOTPRINT.  AND, EVEN AS SOME UTILITIES WORK TO INTEGRATE WIND AND SOLAR, NATURAL GAS WILL CONTINUE TO SERVE AS AN IMPORTANT BACKUP--FOR THEIR GROWING RENEWABLE-POWER SYSTEMS."
