Governor Tomblin Issues Statement Following Dominion Announcement
Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today issued the following statement after an economic development announcement from Dominion:
"For many years, we've worked hard to make the most of the Marcellus and Utica Shale developments in West Virginia," Gov. Tomblin said. "We continue to be optimistic about the existing and future opportunities this industry brings to the Mountain State, and today's announcement by Dominion has the potential to create good-paying jobs for our hard-working men and women. We appreciate the continued investments Dominion is making in our region and look forward to capitalizing on our state's abundant supply of natural gas, which has the potential to provide promising opportunities for both current and future generations. West Virginia is proud to continue its legacy as an energy-producing state and help create energy independence for our country."
