McCaul on President’s Keystone Pipeline Decision: “politics at its worst."

WASHINGTON, DC– Today following the President’s announcement that he will not approve the Keystone XL Pipeline, Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX) made the following statement:

McCaul: “The President’s decision to continually ignore the representatives of the American people and reject the Keystone XL pipeline is politics at its worst. The Keystone XL pipeline received bipartisan support when it passed Congress, it would create jobs, help our economy, and help America become a more independent energy power. But because he is beholden to special interests, the President has decided to reject its construction. This lack of leadership and political maneuvering is why the American people are fed up with Washington."
