Dear Center Board Chairs & Center Directors:
President Trump issued a Presidential Memorandum on January 24th, 2017 regarding the Construction of American Pipelines. The memorandum calls for agencies to develop a plan under which all new pipelines, as well as retrofitted, repaired, or expanded pipelines, inside the borders of the United States, including portions of pipelines, use materials and equipment produced in the United States, to the maximum extent possible and to the extent permitted by law. We are asked to conduct outreach to stakeholders to respond with comments to the Request for Information. The RFI will be open for input until April 7, 2017.
This a great opportunity for us to get our clients and colleagues involved and to make sure their viewpoints are heard. Please use the linked information to get the word out in each of your marketplaces across the country as quickly as possible. Also, reach out to your federal, state and local partners who also work with manufacturers to help maximize our outreach efforts to get as many manufacturers to respond with their comments to construction of American pipelines.
Thank you very much for your leadership and support.
