Rep. LaMalfa Comments on Keystone XL Pipeline Rejection
Washington, DC – Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) today released the following statement regarding the President’s announcement to officially reject construction of the Keystone Pipeline.
“The President’s announcement today to block the Keystone XL pipeline is not only inconsistent with the message sent from the American public, but also a stark example of political maneuvering. Congress has time and time again passed this bill with bipartisan support so we can move forward to create thousands of new jobs while increasing our energy independence. I urge the President to stop putting politics above people and start doing what is best for our country and the economy.”
Congressman Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.
