API says bipartisan support for Keystone XL oil pipeline continues to grow


API says bipartisan support for Keystone XL oil pipeline continues to grow American Petroleum Institute President and CEO Jack Gerard welcomed a Senate letter sent from nearly a dozen Democrats to President Obama urging him to swiftly approve the Keystone XL pipeline and put thousands of Americans to work while enhancing U.S. energy security.

“The voices of bipartisan support for KXL continue to grow louder with many of those voices coming from the president’s own party,” said Gerard. “President Obama should listen to these voices and that of the majority of Americans who are beyond tired of waiting for this project’s approval.

“Delaying the decision on the Keystone XL sends the wrong signal to the rest of the world. A nation that continues to be indecisive on a simple a matter of our own energy security will have a hard time convincing the rest of the world we can be decisive when it comes to their interests. We’ve got to get focused on Keystone approval. The world is watching. We need to send the signal: We’re serious about our domestic energy policy and our global energy policy. It’s time to approve the Keystone XL pipeline.”
