Urge POTUS to Take Every Practicable Step to Get Project Back on Track

U.S. CONGRESS – U.S. Senator Steve Daines and Congressman Greg Gianforte today led 42 Members of Congress in sending a letter to President Trump to urge any immediate action necessary to move construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline forward

“The Keystone XL pipeline will bring nearly 6600 high paying jobs in the near-term and nearly $4 billion in new capital investment next year alone,” the letter states. “[O]ne of your first actions as President was to expedite the approval and construction of the Keystone XL pipeline across six western and rural states. While we sincerely appreciate your strong leadership on this issue, we write now to encourage that leadership and attention to continue so that this important infrastructure project can become a reality.”
