Nov 6, 2015
Press Release

WASHINGTON U.S. Congressman Jeb Hensarling (TX-05) released the following statement upon news that President Obama will reject the application for the Keystone XL Pipeline:

“I am highly disappointed, though hardly shocked, by the president’s decision to reject the Keystone XL Pipeline. President Obama has once again put the will of special interests ahead of jobs for the American people. Instead of listening to the countless reports – including the findings of his own administration – which said the Keystone XL Pipeline is safe, will increase North American energy independence, and create jobs, or to the majority of Americans who support the project, President Obama has chosen to listen to left-wing environmental lobbyists.”
