Americans for Prosperity-Nebraska urges President Obama to approve the Keyston XL pipeline 

LINCOLN, NE — Americans for Prosperity, Nebraska’s foremost grassroots advocate for economic freedom, urges President Obama to approve the Keystone XL pipeline following the latest report from the State Department.

AFP-Nebraska Director, Matt Litt, released the following statement in response to the report:

“The report from the State Department is just another reason why this pipeline should not be used as a political token. This pipeline is safe, will have a positive impact on the economy, and put thousands of people to work. This is a real jobs program.

“If President Obama wants help Americans and have a positive impact on their daily lives, he must approve of the Keystone XL pipeline after the latest report.”
