US Sens. John Hoeven (R-ND) and Max Baucus (D-Mont.) said they will introduce legislation
to bypass the White House and federally approve the proposed Keystone crude oil pipeline’s
cross-border permit. Theirv announcement came a week after House Energy and Commerce
Committee members released a similar proposal.
I think The [US Department of State’s] favorable finding in its most recent report makes clear
both the good environmental stewardship of the project and the need to begin construction
without further delay.
“This is about one simple thing: jobs and At a time when job creation must be our No. 1 priority,
approving the Keystone Pipeline is the perfect opportunity to put folks across the country, to
work right now. American workers cannot afford to wait any longer for Keystone jobs, and there
is absolutely no excuse for further delay.
