McHenry Again Votes to Approve Keystone XL Pipeline

Today, Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement after House passage of H.R. 3, the Keystone XL Pipeline Act:

“The results of last fall’s election made clear the American people’s two greatest concerns are creating jobs and improving the economy.  Today the House has again voted to approve construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, a project that if completed, would do both. 
“Approval of the Keystone pipeline is long overdue. The project has been approved by various federal and state agencies including John Kerry’s State Department. It is supported by a majority of Americans and enjoys bipartisan support in both the House and Senate. After the election President Obama claimed he was prepared to work with Congress on areas of bipartisan agreement; Keystone would be a great start.”
