Bilirakis Statement on Keystone XL Pipeline Rejection
Today, President Obama officially rejected construction of the Keystone Pipeline. Over the course of seven years, Congress has voted several times to allow for construction of the pipeline. Congressman Gus Biliraks (R-FL) released the following statement:
“The President’s rejection of the Keystone Pipeline, though not entirely surprising, is extremely disappointing. This pipeline would lower energy costs, create more American jobs, and provide our nation with greater energy security. This decision is par for the course for this administration which has been one disappointment after another. Americans deserve so much better."
