WASHINGTON, D.C.— Marty Durbin, President of the U.S. Chamber's Global Energy Institute, issued the following statement today regarding the East Coast fuel supply disruption:

“We applaud the administration for recognizing the potential impacts the fuel supply disruption may have on the economy and national security by issuing emergency fuel waivers and a temporary hours of service exemption for motor carriers and drivers. We urge the administration to consider additional preemptive actions to insulate against potentially more severe impacts, including issuance of Jones Act Waivers.”
