Congressman Lee Terry (R-NE) today released the following statement regarding the re-submission of a supplemental Keystone XL pipeline permit application by TransCanada. Terry is the author of several pieces of legislation designed to expedite the approval of the project.
"I'm glad to see this project moving forward again. For too long, it has been held up by politics, misinformation, and fear-mongering. For nearly four years, this project has been studied and re-studied. It is in our nation's best interest to reduce our reliance on unfriendly sources of energy such as Venezuela and instead make the most of our closest trade partner, Canada. It is time for us to get the ball rolling."
