Murkowski Addresses Senate on Importance of Keystone Pipeline

Multiple state senators addressed the U.S. Senate in regards to the Keystone Pipeline this afternoon.

 

Sen. Lisa Murkowski said there are currently 17 operating oil pipelines, 30 electric transmission lines, and 29 natural gas pipelines between the U.S. and Canada.

 

Sen. Murkowski: “And these are all energy infrastructure that cross the border with Canada whether its into Montana, whether its Washington, whether its North Dakota, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Vermont, Idaho, Maine; you have to wonder, aren’t these all in the national interest here? What is so unique, what is so compelling about this Keystone XL Pipeline that it is not only taking the five years of study that is already done but is now on indefinite hold for yet further study.”
