Supporting the Keystone XL Pipeline
(Washington, D.C.) Today, I voted in favor of, and the House passed, H.R. 5682, a bill that if enacted will immediately allow TransCanada to construct the Keystone XL pipeline. I hope that the Senate will take up this important bipartisan legislation next week and that the President will immediately sign it into law. By approving Keystone XL now, we can improve our economy, bolster our national security, and reassert our standing in the world as nations can rely on us rather than depend on despotic rulers for their energy supply.
