Joyce Votes for keystone XL Pipeline Jobs and Energy Independence

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Today, Rep. Dave Joyce voted in favor of H.R. 3,the Northern Route Approval Act, which wouldallow for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, a $7 billion private sector energy infrastructure project that will bring thousands of jobs and greater energy supplies to America. Joyce released the following statement:

"Building the Keystone XL pipeline means 20,000 new American jobs, cheaper energy prices for Ohio families, and safer energy practices for our environment. It's a common-sense jobs project and it's time for big government to step aside and let the American people build this pipeline."

H.R. 3 will bypass the president's delays by removing the need for a Presidential Permit. The legislation also includes several provisions to prevent additional regulatory hurdles and legal challenges. H.R. 3 would limit the judicial review process, satisfy all National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requirements, and streamline the permitting and approval process for all other necessary federal permits.
