WASHINGTON, May 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Council for Capital Formation's (ACCF) Act on LNG campaign has launched a new video highlighting how important liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports are to revitalizing Main Street, powering key industries, and strengthening U.S. manufacturing. The short video, narrated by former Congressman Harold Ford Jr. (D-Tenn.), also urges the Obama Administration to speed up LNG export approvals. The video complements efforts in Congress to boost LNG exports to America's allies through legislation, including The Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act (H.R. 6).

"This video captures the sense of urgency that is needed to ensure that the United States continues to lead the world in the development of energy resources – particularly natural gas," explained Dr. Margo Thorning, chief economist and executive vice president of ACCF. "Exporting LNG would be a real game changer for the nation's economy and would help America sustain its natural gas boom. We hope this video will spark further conversation around natural gas exports – especially the need to cut through the bureaucratic red tape holding back development."

A project of the American Council for Capital Formation (ACCF), Act on LNG is a new campaign dedicated to maximizing America's competitive energy advantage through a market-oriented solution to liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports. To learn more, visit:
