The Keystone XL pipeline represents a lifeline for American workers and the U.S. economy, and the longer we wait for approval, the longer the creation of thousands of high-paying manufacturing jobs for American workers is put on hold. That was the message from NAM Members Albert Huber of Patterson Pump Company and Peter Bowe of Ellicott Dredges in a recent op-ed.
NAM Vice President of Energy and Resources Policy Ross Eisenberg also recently addressed this issue at a panel hosted by Politico, saying “it’s time for the President to keep his promise to cut red tape and approve this job-creating infrastructure project.”
The first permit application for the Keystone XL pipeline was submitted to the State Department on September 19, 2008—nearly five and a half years ago.
