In response to President Obama's rejection of TransCanada's application to build the Keystone pipeline, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Urbana) issued the following statement:
"The law clearly says the President can only block this project if he determines it "would not serve the national interest.' How are thousands of new jobs, cheaper energy and greater security not in our national interest?"
"With this decision, the President has chosen to side with radical environmentalists over the American people. Those hurt most by his decision are the millions of Americans who need these jobs the most."
