Posted on November 6, 2015

NASHVILLE, Nov. 6, 2015 – U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on the the president’s rejection of the Keystone XL Pipeline:

“I am very disappointed in the president's misguided decision. There is no reason whatsoever not to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline. The president’s own state department’s ‘Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement’ of Jan. 2014 said building the pipeline would not significantly affect the environment, and the pipeline would have created thousands of jobs for American workers and put our country one step closer to energy independence.”
