After Nebraska Approval, President Should Say Yes to Keystone


Jan 22, 2013

Washington
-

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today responded to Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman’s announcement that he has approved a route for the Keystone XL pipeline by calling on President Obama to immediately approve the project:

“Nebraska’s approval of a new Keystone XL pipeline route means there is no bureaucratic excuse, hurdle, or catch President Obama can use to delay this project any further.  He and he alone stands in the way of tens of thousands of new jobs and energy security.  Every state along the proposed route supports this project, as does a bipartisan coalition in Congress and a majority of Americans.  I recognize all the political pressure the president faces, but with our energy security at stake and many jobs in limbo, he should find a way to say yes.”
