AUSTIN – The following can be attributed to Todd Staples, president of the Texas Oil & Gas Association and former Texas Agriculture Commissioner.
“We appreciate the President’s diligence in crafting a renewed trade agreement that helps secure our nation’s energy future and are hopeful Congress will approve the USMCA. As the leading oil and natural gas producer, the number one state in many agricultural products, and a major exporter, Texas is home to those who understand the value in strong relationships with our neighboring countries. Texas oil and natural gas companies of every industry sector are playing a major role in producing jobs and opportunities for all Americans, and this pact will move us toward North American energy security and continued improved relationships with our closest trading partners.”
