Montana delegates react to possible canceling of Keystone XL pipeline

MISSOULA, Mont. — President-elect Joe Biden may be planning to put an end to the Keystone XL pipeline on his first day in office through an executive order.

The proposed pipeline, which would run through eastern Montana, has been met with several obstacles despite support from the Trump administration.

Senator Steve Daines is speaking out against any decision to put an end to the pipeline saying it would be detrimental to Montana's job growth.

In a statement Monday, Daines said he urges Biden "to consider the devastating repercussions for states like Montana"

A spokesperson for senator Jon Tester says he believes more discussion is needed with both supporters and opponents of the pipeline before a decision can be made.
