Tester on KXL: President threatens energy security

(U.S. Senate) – Senator Jon Tester today released the following statement criticizing President Obama for rejecting the Keystone XL Pipeline:

“I’m disappointed with the President’s decision. After dragging his feet for years on the Keystone pipeline, the President missed an opportunity to strengthen America’s energy security. This decision prevents more good-paying Montana jobs and ensures that we continue to do business with hostile countries in the Middle East. “

Tester has been calling on President Obama to approve the Keystone XL pipeline since 2010.
