President Obama and Senate Democrats have imposed unnecessary burdens and roadblocks that have delayed approval of shovel-ready jobs project
While the House of Representatives has worked tirelessly to advance the Keystone XL Pipeline over the last four years, President Obama and Senate Democrats have imposed unnecessary burdens and roadblocks at every turn that have delayed approval of this shovel-ready jobs project. Friday the House of Representatives passed H.R. 5682, a bill written by Dr. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, that would provide approval for construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. The Senate has yet another chance to pass this legislation and send it to President Obama for his signature. It is time for the House and the Senate to work together to implement solutions that create thousands of American jobs nationwide, inject billions of dollars into our economy, and put us on a path towards energy independence. This has been a long and arduous approval process, and the time for excuses and unnecessary delay is over.
