Senate Statement: Obama’s choice to Veto Keystone

I was very disappointed to learn that President Obama had vetoed the Keystone XL bill, and I addressed this in a statement in the Senate today. The Keystone bill is the most sophisticated and safest pipeline proposal in the world, and it is dramatically safer to transport oil via pipeline than by rail.

President Obama has turned a blind eye to Canada and our shared history.  Canada has shown immense support to the United States, and it is disappointing that we are receiving this type of treatment. You can listen to my entire statement in the Senate below.
