While the Administration continues to stall on approval of the Keystone pipeline, a new poll released this week shows that more than two-thirds of Americans support building the project. The poll, published by United Technologies and National Journal, found that 67 percent of Americans support construction of the pipeline while only 24 percent oppose the project.
The Keystone XL pipeline is an essential part of an all-of-the-above energy strategy and will create thousands of jobs and enhance America’s energy security. That’s why the National Association of Manufacturers recently issued a NAM Key Vote Letter in support of H.R. 3, House legislation that would expedite approval of the Keystone XL pipeline.
It’s past time that the administration ends the delays and stall-tactics and approves this job-creating project. The longer we wait for approval, the longer it delays the creation of thousands of high-paying manufacturing jobs for American workers.
