[GOV] Governor Pence Urges President Obama to Approve the Keystone XL Pipeline
Start Date: 4/21/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/21/2014
Entry Description

Indianapolis—In a letter to President Obama, Governor Mike Pence urges the President to approve the Keystone XL pipeline.  The Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement issued by the U.S. Department of Sate in January 2014 estimated that during construction the Keystone XL project will support 42,100 jobs and $2 billion in earnings throughout the United States.  Last Friday, the White House announced that President Obama was putting his final decision on hold until a time to be determined. 

“Though Indiana is not part of the pipeline route, Indiana still stands to benefit economically from the pipeline, especially our manufacturing industry,” said Governor Pence. “Indiana companies build engines for large trucks, pump controls, and other products that will be used during the construction and operation of the pipeline, meaning increased jobs and economic activity in Indiana.”

The Governor’s letter to the President is attached.
