Price Applauds Passage of Keystone Pipeline
House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price, M.D. (GA-06) issued the following statement after the House of Representatives voted to authorize construction of the Keystone XL pipeline:
“Once again, the House has acted with broad, bipartisan support to pass the Keystone XL Pipeline, and we expect swift action in the Senate. This common sense project will create jobs and strengthen America’s energy security. It reflects the will of the American people who are ready to see Congress work together on real solutions to expand economic opportunity.
“Instead of working across the aisle like he has repeatedly claimed he would, President Obama has already issued a veto threat. He has blocked this project for years – putting political considerations above the interests of American workers.
The president ought to demonstrate true leadership by allowing the Keystone Pipeline to move forward.”
