(S.D.)-Noem To Continue Fight For Keystone XL

By: Kevin Larsen Posted at: 11/18/2014 04:42 PM

(Washington, D.C.) – South Dakota Representative Kristi Noem has promised to continue the fight for the Keystone XL Pipeline’s construction in the wake of the U.S. Senate voting down legislation to advance the pipeline. Noem helped the House pass the legislation on November 14th.
“I was extremely disappointed to see the United States Senate vote down bipartisan legislation to construct the Keystone XL Pipeline,” said Rep. Noem. “This pipeline would create jobs, alleviate pressure on our road systems and rails, and generate revenues for our states to support local schools and infrastructure. This is not the end of this fight and I look forward to resurrecting this debate in the New Year.”
Noem has been a vocal supporter of the Keystone XL Pipeline’s construction. She is a co-sponsor of H.R. 3, the Northern Route Approval Act, and has strongly urged President Obama and Secretary Kerry in writing to support immediate approval of the pipeline.
