Rep. Huffman Speaks on Environmental Impact of Keystone XL Pipeline

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Today, Rep. Jared Huffman (CA-02) a member of the Safe Climate Caucus, spoke on the House floor about the State Department's supplemental environmental impact statement on the Keystone XL pipeline.

Rep. Huffman highlighted how approving the dirty, expensive tar sands pipeline could undo the progress our country has made in its leadership on climate change, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and clean energy job creation.

"Keystone XL would unlock development of some of the dirtiest, climate-damaging fuel on earth, and it would lock the U.S. into a deeper dependence on dirty and expensive tar sands fuel, which takes this country in the wrong direction for our environment and our economy," said Rep. Huffman.

The Safe Climate Caucus members have made a commitment to talk every day on the House Floor about the urgent need to address climate change.
