Keystone XL bill vetoed by Obama

API SmartBrief | Feb 25, 2015

President Barack Obama on Tuesday vetoed legislation authorizing the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, saying it was a congressional move to bypass "longstanding and proven processes" for assessing cross-border pipelines. American Petroleum Institute President and CEO Jack Gerard said that rather than "saying yes to 42,000 good-paying jobs and enhanced North American energy security, this veto proved once again that it's politics as usual here in Washington." Meanwhile, a White House spokesman said the veto doesn't rule out a possible issuance of a federal permit for the project. Hill, The (02/24) FuelFix.com (02/24)
