Congressman Lucas Reacts to President's Disapproval of Keystone XL Pipeline

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Frank Lucas, R-OK , today made the following comments after President Barack Obama announced he would not approve of implementation of the Keystone XL Pipeline project, which would create 20,000 direct jobs and spur the creation of 118,000 spin-off jobs in the United States.

"I am extremely disappointed President Obama has decided to reject the construction of the Keystone Pipeline," said Lucas. "This pipeline has the potential to create 20,000 immediate jobs and decrease the United States' dependency on foreign oil. Disapproval of this project will only increase the amount of money Americans pay at the gas pumps. With Oklahoma being a top producer in American made energy, it is discouraging that the President is turning down this opportunity to create economic prosperity and utilize our domestic energy resources. The Keystone XL Pipeline would most certainly serve the national interest, and I do not know why the Administration is denying America the chance to grow and prosper."
