Mansour: Biden's Energy Policies Could Kill 160,000 Michigan Jobs,


Democratic nominee Joe Biden's energy policies could have a devastating impact on Michigan that could potentially destroy 160,000 energy sector jobs, decimate the auto industry, impede manufacturing operations, increase home heating expenses, and create California-style rolling blackouts in the Great Lakes State.

Biden's proposal to eliminate fracking, "transition from the oil industry," and achieve "zero emissions" by 2035 would adversely impact nearly every sector of Michigan's economy, starting with the jobs directly related to the oil and gas industry.

The oil and natural gas industry supports over 159,100 jobs in Michigan, according to a 2017 study conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and commissioned by the American Petroleum Institute.
