    The U.S. today has the resources to counter such moves as Russia’s recent cutoff of natural gas shipments to Ukraine and the ISIS surge in Iraq that threatens that nation’s oil and gas deliveries. The simple changes in law and policy needed to expedite the growth of the U.S. LNG business are to (a) open up federal lands and waters to drilling, and in particular, hydrofracking, and (b) expedite approval by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Department of Energy of LNG export plans that would bring jobs for out-of-work Americans and tax revenues to state and local governments.
