Senate Vote on Keystone XL
Vote s49-2015

Description

Today, the Senate will vote on final passage of S.1, the Keystone XL Pipeline Act. After more than six years of study and delay, this bill would allow the Keystone XL pipeline to be built across the U.S.-Canadian border. For years, President Obama has refused to decide if allowing the pipeline to be built is in the “national interest.” Allowing a pipeline to be built from Canada into the United States is in the national interest.

The Keystone XL pipeline will create thousands of construction jobs. The additional oil means new manufacturing jobs in the United States and it means more stable oil prices. All of this means a more robust economy in the United States and Canada and greater energy security.

Besides creating jobs, transporting oil by pipeline is the safest, most efficient, most environmental friendly way of transporting oil. In other words, there are no downsides to allowing the pipeline to be built.

The American Energy Alliance supports S.1 and it will be included in our American Energy Scorecard. YES IS THE PRO-ENERGY, PRO-ENVIRONMENT, AND PRO-FREEDOM VOTE.
