Congressman Steve Daines today commended Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman's recent approval of a new route for the Keystone XL pipeline and called on President Barack Obama to expeditiously move forward the final approval of the job-creating project.
"The construction of the Keystone XL pipeline doesn't just signify another step toward North American energy independence. It means more good-paying Montana jobs that will help strengthen and grow our state's economy," Daines stated. "Nebraska Governor Heineman's announcement is welcome news, but it's not the final step. It's time for President Obama to act and approve this job-creating project without any further delay."
