Washington, D.C., February 7, 2017 – National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons issued the following statement after the Army Corps of Engineers announced it will grant permission to complete the Dakota Access Pipeline project (DAPL):

“This green light is welcome news for manufacturers. Such investments in America’s energy infrastructure create tremendous opportunities for the manufacturers who supply these projects. The construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline will boost manufacturing across the country. Building new energy infrastructure makes our country more competitive, creates jobs and helps make life more affordable for our families—common goals that all Americans support.”
