AFP Applauds House Passage of Rep. Lee Terry’s Northern Keystone Pipeline Bill
Lincoln, NE – Today, Americans for Prosperity-Nebraska, a statewide free-market grassroots organization released, the following statement regarding the passage of the northern segment of the XL Keystone Pipeline bill.
“Bi-partisan passage of this important, job creating bill is a step in the right direction for our long term energy needs and will help create lasting economic growth,” said AFP President Tim Phillips.  “We applaud the members of the U.S. House for moving our country forward and doing the right thing for their constituents. Now we urge the Senate and the President to set aside ideological extremism and pass this commonsense job-creating legislation.”
“It is time to create new jobs and signfiicant economic development – it is time to build Keystone XL.  We are grateful for Nebraska’s Rep. Lee Terry for his leadership on this important issue,” said state director Brad Stevens.
AFP issued a key vote alert before the vote, urging House members to support final passage.
