Tester hails passage of Keystone pipeline bill

(U.S. Senate) -Senator Jon Tester today released the following statement after the Senate passed the Keystone XL Pipeline bill by a vote of 62 to 36:

“The Keystone pipeline will make our nation more energy secure and it will create jobs in Montana. I urge President Obama to sign the bill into law. But Keystone is not the only solution for our energy future. We must step up our work to make cleaner energy alternatives a larger part of our nation’s energy strategy.”
