President Obama Rejects Keystone XL Pipeline Makes Wrong Choice on Job-Creation and Energy Independence

Washington, D.C. – Today, President Obama rejected one of the largest shovel ready projects in the nation when he stopped the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. The pipeline would provide $20 billion in private investment to boost the American economy and create 20,000 jobs over the next two years. It would also provide America access to about 830,000 barrels of secure and reliable oil that will help ensure our energy future.

“We can’t wait for the President because his inaction will hurt the American economy and consumers through higher energy costs,” said Rep. Andy Harris. “The time to act is now and that’s why I’ve cosponsored H.R. 3548 which takes the authority to approve the Keystone Pipeline out of his hands. This bill allows the project to move forward and encourages economic growth and job creation through the construction of the pipeline.”
