House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement following the State Department's release of its latest Keystone XL pipeline environmental impact statement:
"I am glad that the most recent study of the Keystone XL pipeline says that it should have no significant environmental impacts. However, it is ridiculous that it only took Canada seven months to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, yet after four and a half years the President still can't make a decision. How long must Americans wait for the creation of thousands of jobs and a giant leap toward North American energy independence? This should be a no-brainer."
