Portman Visits Columbus Manufacturer to Discuss Gas Prices, Keystone XL Pipeline Project

U.S. Senator Rob Portman visited Ametek Solidstate Controls in Columbus, Ohio to address rising gas prices and discuss pro-growth energy solutions that will lessen America's dependence on oil imported from OPEC. Ametek Solidstate Controls, a worldwide leader in the production of uninterruptible power supplies, inverters and battery charger systems, is expected to secure work on the Keystone XL Pipeline project. Portman is an advocate of the project because it will increase access to oil from a dependable American ally, create thousands of jobs, and benefit Ohio's struggling manufacturing sector.
