-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
EARLIER THIS MONTH [SEPTEMBER], THE "AMERICAN PETROLEUM INSTITUTE" RELEASED A STUDY ON THE NEGATIVE IMPACTS OF A "DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE"-SHUTDOWN.  IT FINDS THAT A SHUTDOWN COULD CAUSE TAX-REVENUES TO GO DOWN, AND UNEMPLOYMENT TO GO UP--WHILE ALSO THREATENING NATIONAL SECURITY.  CRAIG STEVENS REPRESENTS "GROW AMERICA'S INFRASTRUCTURE NOW"...

(STEVENS):
"
SHUTTING DOWN THE 'DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE' WOULD HURT OUR NATION'S ECONOMY--BY BRINGING ABOUT HIGHER ENERGY-COSTS.  SPECIFICALLY, ACCORDING TO 'A-P-I', ABOUT THREE-THOUSAND JOBS WOULD BE CUT, OVER THE NEXT YEAR-AND-A-HALF.  AND, IT WOULD MAKE OUR COUNTRY--AND WORLD--MORE RELIANT ON FOREIGN SOURCES OF OIL--TIPPING THE SCALES IN FAVOR OF COUNTRIES LIKE IRAN, VENEZUELA, AND EVEN RUSSIA.  WE SIMPLY CANNOT AFFORD TO PUT OUR NATION'S ENERGY- AND NATIONAL-SECURITY AT RISK; THE 'DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE' MUST REMAIN OPERATIONAL."
