Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN-7) issued the following statement regarding the Obama Administration's block of the Keystone Project.

"The Keystone Pipeline XL project would not only serve as a valuable energy resource for our nation, but would create thousands of truly shovel-ready jobs here at home. The Obama administration's decision to block this project from moving forward is further evidence that when it comes to job creation, the President just doesn't have a clue. It's extremely disappointing that after 40 months of review, he has chosen to cater to the liberal special interests in making this decision that will ship thousands of jobs overseas."
