State Dept. dragging its feet on Keystone XL docs, does it matter?

The chairman of the U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Jason Chaffetz, wants the State Department to release statements from other federal agencies regarding whether or not they believe the Keystone XL pipeline project is in the national interest.

It would be really interesting to see what those agencies have to say. But even if that doesn't happen, we already know where the State Department itself stands.

Way back in January of 2014, the U.S. Department of State issued their Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on the Keystone XL pipeline. In it, they clearly stated that they believed the pipeline would have minimal impact on the environment, while supporting 42,000 jobs for American workers during the construction phase.

That sounds like an ample endorsement to most people. Yet here we are, six years down the road, still waiting on the Obama Administration to give Keystone XL the go-ahead.

Here’s what the House Energy and Commerce Committee thinks about the Keystone XL pipeline. Drop Sec. of State John Kerrey an email and ask him if their opinion gives him reason enough to say yes to this important addition to American energy infrastructure.
