Press Release

Washington, D.C. --- Congressman Leonard Lance today issued the following statement on the release of the U.S. State Department’s final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on the Keystone XL pipeline:

“The fifth and final environmental report on the Keystone XL pipeline should remove any doubts surrounding the Keystone XL project,” said Lance, a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.  "The project will create American jobs and American energy and reduce North America’s dependence on foreign oil.  It has bipartisan support in Congress and the backing of labor and business alike.  After enduring more than five years of review, red tape and delay, there is no reason left for the President not to approve this project immediately.  It’s time to build the Keystone XL pipeline.”
