American natural gas development strengthens the economy and national security, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told Shale Insight attendees today.

Spicer, the keynote speaker at the conference in Pittsburgh, said natural gas is “good for manufacturing. It’s good for jobs. It’s a no-brainer.”

A sound and smart energy policy improves jobs and the environment, while increasing the nation’s global standing, Spicer said.

“Being energy dominant is not just good foreign policy; it’s good domestic policy,” Spicer said.

When it comes to government regulations, Spicer said, agencies have to “be smart” and ensure rules “don’t stifle the American worker.”
