WASHINGTON, DC (PRWEB) May 01, 2014
American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) offered its support of Sens. John Hoeven’s (R–ND) and Mary Landrieu’s (D-LA) bi-partisan bill that would allow Congress its authority to approve the completion of the Keystone XL pipeline.
AFPM President Charles T. Drevna said, “President Obama has proven time and again that he will employ any stall tactic to avoid advancement of the pipeline, even though there are absolutely no environmental reasons to do so. If after 1,927 days in office the president can’t make the only rational decision and approve the project, then Congress must act so that our nation can enjoy the benefits of an improved economy, the immediate creation of thousands of jobs, and enhanced national security that the pipeline will bring.”
