Battle to build Keystone XL is far from over

WASHINGTON, March 4, 2015 – API President and CEO Jack Gerard said today’s Senate vote to override the president’s veto of Keystone XL proves Washington is trying to work for the people.

“Lawmakers are listening to the American people on Keystone,” said Gerard. “That’s why Democrats and Republicans came together on this bill and that is why there are efforts to override the president’s veto. While we urge Congress to continue to fight for KXL, there should be no need for Congressional action if the president would make a final judgment on Keystone. The president has always had the authority on this and he can approve this pipeline today.

“After more than six years, it’s time to move beyond excuses and delays. If we are ever going to enhance our nation’s infrastructure we must start by making good decisions on projects that are in our national interest.”
