(OPEN):
A STATEWIDE ILLINOIS-POLL, CONDUCTED LAST MONTH [JANUARY], FOUND THAT NEARLY TWO-THIRDS OF RESIDENTS SUPPORT INCREASING THE CAPACITY OF THE "DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE".  THIS COMES AS THE "ILLINOIS COMMERCE COMMISSION" CONSIDERS A PROPOSAL TO CONSTRUCT A NEW PUMP-STATION THAT WOULD ALLOW FOR THE INCREASED THROUGHPUT.  CRAIG STEVENS IS A SPOKESMAN FOR "GROW AMERICA'S INFRASTRUCTURE NOW"--WHICH SPONSORED THE SURVEY...

(STEVENS):
"
THE 'DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE' OPTIMIZATION-PROJECT WOULD DOUBLE THE PIPELINE'S CAPACITY--TO MORE THAN A MILLION BARRELS, PER DAY--WHILE REQUIRING NO NEW PIPELINE-CONSTRUCTION.  THIS WOULD BOLSTER NATIONAL SECURITY, REDUCE AMERICA'S RELIANCE ON IMPORTS, AND TAKE RISK OFF THE ROAD--BY PROMOTING THE SAFE DELIVERY OF ENERGY-RESOURCES.  THE POLL ALSO FOUND THAT ABOUT 85-PERCENT OF ILLINOIS-RESIDENTS RECOGNIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF THE PIPELINE'S ROLE IN CONTRIBUTING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, IN STATE- AND LOCAL-TAXES.  PLUS, 84-PERCENT BELIEVE [THAT] 'DAKOTA ACCESS' IS PROVIDING A SAFER MEANS-OF-TRANSPORTATION FOR OUR ENERGY-RESOURCES--ESPECIALLY WHEN COMPARED TO TRUCK OR RAIL."

(CLOSE):
THE COMMISSION IS SCHEDULED TO HOLD A HEARING ON THE PROPOSAL NEXT MONTH [MARCH].  FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT "GAIN-NOW"-DOT-ORG.
