AEA Statement on Keystone XL Veto

WASHINGTON — American Energy Alliance President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement on President Obama’s veto of the Keystone XL pipeline bill:

“The White House said President Obama would veto the Keystone bill ‘without drama or fanfare or delay.’ That’s rich coming from a president who has spent the last six years turning a routine decision over an infrastructure project into a media circus.

“Instead of listening to the American people, who overwhelmingly support the pipeline, the president continues to carry water for the national environmental lobby. Keystone XL is an economic no-brainer that would create thousands of jobs and strengthen America’s relationship with Canada, our strongest energy partner. Along with the administration’s methane rules, plans to lock up ANWR, and permitting delays on federal lands, this veto sends a clear message to OPEC that help is on the way.

“The only drama here is that of the president’s own doing.”
