U.S. Chamber of Commerce : Jul 30 - U.S. Chamber Comments on President’s Remarks on Keystone XL Pipeline

07/30/2013 | 06:40pm US/Eastern

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In response to President Obama's remarks today on the Keystone XL pipeline in Chattanooga, Tennessee, U.S. Chamber Energy Institute President and CEO Karen Harbert released the following statement:

"On the Keystone XL pipeline, the president continues to ignore his own administration's analysis and demean the value of thousands of American jobs for those that badly need them.

"There are many ways to create jobs, including allowing for energy development on the 85% of federal land that is currently under lock and key.  But we know that an easy way to start creating jobs is to approve the Keystone XL pipeline and put 42,000 Americans to work, according to the U.S. Department of State.

"One thing is for sure: Delay, deny, and duck is not a jobs plan."

The mission of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Institute for 21st Century Energy is to unify policymakers, regulators, business leaders, and the American public behind a common sense energy strategy to help keep America secure, prosperous, and clean. Through policy development, education, and advocacy, the Institute is building support for meaningful action at the local, state, national, and international levels.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world's largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
