Cassidy Statement on Biden Plan to Terminate Keystone XL Pipeline

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) released a statement following reporting that President Biden intends to revoke a key permit for the Keystone XL pipeline.

“A president who promised to help the American people should not start off his administration by killing a project in which thousands are employed,” said Dr. Cassidy.

Cassidy urged the Trump administration to expedite the Keystone XL pipeline and was a strong critique of President Obama’s attempts to kill the job creating project.

The Keystone XL is “expected to employ more than 11,000 Americans in 2021, creating more than $1.6 billion in gross wages.”
