Keystone XL Pipeline
Reguarding the President's decision to deny the application for construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, sending more jobs and resources overseas.
More than three years ago the application was filed to build the Keystone XL pipeline and bring jobs and energy security to America, and today the Administration rejected it. The Keystone XL pipeline is one of the largest private infrastructure projects in American history. It would have created 20,000 jobs immediately; spurred the creation of 118,000 spin-off jobs, and reduced our dependence on Middle Eastern oil.
The Administration's excessive regulations have continually hindered job creation in the Valley and around the nation. We must invest in our natural resources, and encourage access to available resources and the jobs that come with them.
