Shelby on Keystone XL: It's Time for President Obama to Stop Obstructing This Job-Creating Project

WASHINGTON, DC – Thursday, January 29, 2015 – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today issued the following statement following Senate passage of legislation to approve construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline:

“Senate Republicans told the American people that our new Majority would focus on policies that get Washington out of the way to create jobs and opportunity.  Delivering on our promise, the Senate passed legislation today to approve construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.  This common sense project has been unnecessarily blocked by the Obama Administration for far too long, which has led to the delay of tens of thousands of new good-paying jobs across the country.  It’s time for President Obama to stop obstructing this job-creating project.”
