Today Rep Walberg voted in favor of H.R. 3, the Northern Route Approval Act, to clear the remaining barriers preventing construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
"While President Obama continues to stall on approval for the pipeline, bipartisan support continues to grow. The State Department has said it is environmentally safe, labor unions agree it will create thousands of jobs and 62 of my colleagues in the Senate even voted for a budget amendment to approve the Keystone Pipeline.
Let's move forward with an energy policy that recognizes the job-creating power and increased energy security of the Keystone XL pipeline, which will help lower energy prices and create jobs for Americans," commented Rep Walberg following the vote.
