House Passes Bipartisan Legislation to Approve Keystone XL Pipeline

House Passes Bipartisan Legislation to Approve Keystone XL Pipeline

Thompson Calls Upon Senate to Approve Stalled Energy Infrastructure Project

*** 2014 U.S. State Department report estimates project will support 42,000 jobs nationwide***

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) today issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 5682, legislation to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline. H.R. 5682 passed with bipartisan support by a vote of 252-161.

“Today, the House passed legislation to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline, a measure that has broad bipartisan support in both the House and Senate, will create thousands of American jobs and take us another step toward energy self-sufficiency. Given the obvious merits of moving forward with this vital energy infrastructure project, it is my hope that the Senate will put aside partisan politics and finally bring this important jobs bill to a vote.”

On March 23, 2013, the U.S. Senate approved the Keystone XL Pipeline as part of the Fiscal Year 2014 Budget Resolution by a bipartisan vote of 62-37, which included the backing of Senators Pat Toomey and Bob Casey.

Over the past few years, the House has voted numerous times to approve the pipeline, most recently when it passed H.R. 3, the Northern Route Approval Act, with broad bipartisan support.

Since the passage of H.R. 3, the U.S. State Department completed its Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement in January 31, 2014, which found that the pipeline would have limited adverse environmental impacts and would support more than 42,000 direct and indirect jobs nationwide.

Despite strong support in Congress from both Republican and Democrats, legislation to advance the Keystone XL pipeline has never received a final vote in the Senate.

42,000 huh? I gurantee those aren't permanent jobs. Oh not to mention this "job creator" is actually pumping Canadian oil to canadian refineries. Big mistake. Let's see what happens when the jobs just magically disappear in four or five years.

Sunco Tar Sands mining operation just north of Ft McMurray, Alberta. That's the Athabasca river cutting right through the mining operation. It provides drinking water to this city of 70,000 which, not all surprisingly, has noted a 1000% increase in the formerly rare disease known as Bile Duct Cancer...

You should know exactly what it is you're enabling when you support this bitumen pipeline.

@456, you need to stop getting your talking points from CNN. 1. The pipeline is to us, not from us. Rather my petroleum come from America Light than the middle east. 2. Any jobs are good jobs in the Obama economy. Furthermore, people will learn a trade, gain experience, and make contacts through the employment. Therefore, if said job isn't permanent, they'll have gained valuable substance for their resume, and apply that when acquiring their next job. Simple math really.

THose of you in favor of this because of jobs...obviously you care nothing about the dangers to the water supply and the environment due to fracking. What good are jobs when everyone will be dying of cancer? And if you don't believe it, then you are a fool.

This has the potential of becoming the worst environmental disaster this country has ever seen. This oil is not like the oil we are all familiar with, which is bad enough. But hey, the American people have spoken. With a GOP-led congress, so long to clean water, clean air, the EPA, and hello to cancer, seizures, birth defects. Gotta love it. But this seems to be what the American people want, according to our last election results. The worst government that unbelievable amounts of dark money can buy.
