Letters
TO THE MEMBERS OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE:
 
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports S. 2602, the bipartisan “Utilizing Significant Emissions with Innovative Technologies (USE IT) Act,” which would complement the recent expansion of the carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) tax credit by fostering increased collaboration between governmental and non-governmental entities involved in the construction and development of CCUS facilities and carbon dioxide (CO2) pipelines.
 
Letters
We, the undersigned associations that collectively represent a diverse group of industries from across the country, write to express our support for the nomination of Jeffrey Bossert Clark to be Assistant Attorney General (AAG) for the Justice Department’s Environment and Natural Resources Division (ENRD), and urge expeditious confirmation. 
 
Letters
The safety and security of facilities, employees, and communities are extremely important to the Chamber and its members.  The Chamber’s members conduct risk 
management planning, invest in security, and believe that supporting an ongoing partnership between businesses and federal, state, and local officials is critical to ensuring facility safety today and in the future. 
 
Letters
Dear Chairman Goodlatte and Ranking Member Nadler,
 
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce opposes H.R. 5904, which would amend the Sherman Act to waive sovereign immunity defenses that might otherwise be used to defend against antitrust claims brought before the United States courts.
 
The U.S. Chamber is unalterably opposed to anti-competitive conduct in commercial markets by foreign states and their agents.
 
Letters
The Energy Institute believes that construction of Atlantic Coast Pipeline LLC’s (Atlantic) project, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP), is in Virginia’s and our nation’s best interest.  We are concerned about the Virginia State Water Control Board’s (SWCB) challenge to the Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) Nationwide Permit 12 (NWP 12) program that was accepted by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (VA DEQ) and utilized as part of the pipeline’s permitting review.  We are pleased to submit these comments supporting ACP and its certification by the ACOE under the NWP 12 program.
