(LOOMIS):
"THE NATURAL-GAS- AND OIL-INDUSTRY IS VITAL TO SOUTH CAROLINA.  AND, OPENING THE ATLANTIC TO SAFE, ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE ENERGY-DEVELOPMENT GIVES OUR STATE AN OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE JOBS--AND DIVERSIFY OUR ECONOMY.  IN 2015, THE NATURAL-GAS- AND OIL-INDUSTRY SUPPORTED NEARLY 70-THOUSAND SOUTH CAROLINA JOBS, AND PROVIDED ALMOST THREE-BILLION DOLLARS IN WAGES; IT ALSO CONTRIBUTED MORE THAN FIVE-BILLION DOLLARS TO OUR STATE'S ECONOMY, OVERALL.  SOUTH CAROLINIANS [WHO ARE] URGING GOVERNOR MCMASTER TO OPPOSE OFFSHORE-ENERGY DEVELOPMENT ARE IN THE MINORITY; NEARLY SEVEN-IN-10 VOTERS, STATEWIDE, SUPPORT IT.  SOUTH CAROLINA ALREADY ENJOYS THE LOWEST GAS-PRICES IN THE COUNTRY--LOW PRICES [THAT ARE] MADE POSSIBLE BY SURGING PRODUCTION, IN OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY.  DEVELOPING ATLANTIC OFFSHORE-ENERGY RESOURCES COULD BRING EVEN-GREATER BENEFITS TO OUR STATE--WITHOUT IMPACTING TOURISM, OR OUR COASTAL HABITATS."
