Senator Lankford Applauds Administration Approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) issued the following statement on reports that the Trump Administration will approval the Keystone XL oil pipeline:

“I am glad the Trump administration is moving energy forward with the completion of the northern-leg of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. This is a safe and efficient way to move crude from Canada through the Midwest to the Gulf Coast, but was subject to years of political delay, even though there was no evidence of a significant impact on climate change. The southern part is completed, it’s time to complete the rest of the line.”
