President Obama Rejects Keystone Pipeline
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) responded by saying, “given this project’s importance to North American energy independence, the question still remains not if but when Keystone will be built.” Senator John Hoeven (R-ND) stated that “it’s ironic that after delaying construction for more than seven years, President Obama now finds it pressing to make a decision just as the company is asking for a pause.” Although many Republicans in the House and Senate are frustrated by the President’s announcement, many remain optimistic that the Keystone pipeline will eventually be built.
The fight is not over. If a Republican is elected President next November, one of the very first things on his or her agenda will undoubtedly be to build the pipeline.
PMAA will continue to aggressively push for the passage and construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.
