House Key Vote: Support bill approving the Keystone XL pipeline (H.R. 3)

May 21, 2013 by AFP

Dear Representatives:

On behalf of more than two million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I urge you to support the bill that would approve the Keystone XL pipeline (H.R. 3). Opening up the Keystone XL pipeline would create jobs and help grow the economy.

I urge you to vote YES on the bill approving the Keystone XL pipeline (H.R. 3).  Americans for Prosperity will include this vote in our congressional scorecard.

With unemployment exceeding seven percent and gasoline exceeding $4 per gallon in many parts of the country, Americans could certainly use some relief right now. Approving the Keystone XL pipeline is a commonsense solution. This project represents tens of thousands of new jobs and new economic opportunities for communities that continue to struggle in the down economy. In addition, reports from the State Department repeatedly confirm the safety of the Keystone XL project. Most recently in March, they released a draft environmental impact study finding it “very unlikely” the Keystone XL pipeline would have an adverse environmental impact.

It is disappointing that President Obama continues to delay permitting of the Keystone XL Pipeline.  His refusal signals that he views special interests as more important than affordable energy and job creation. It is time to authorize construction for this important pipeline that will create new jobs and ensure access to affordable, dependable energy for American consumers.

I urge you to vote YES on the bill approving the Keystone XL pipeline (H.R. 3).  Americans for Prosperity will include this vote in our congressional scorecard.

James Valvo
