Corker: Obama Administration Makes “Every Excuse Imaginable” to Delay Keystone XL Pipeline Decision


CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, issued the following statement on the Obama administration’s announcement that it will delay again its decision on the Keystone XL pipeline:

“It’s amazing to watch this administration make every excuse imaginable to delay a project that is unquestionably a win for our country, our economy and American workers,” said Corker. “After more than five years of environmental reviews, it’s clear the president would rather avoid a tough political decision than create thousands of private sector jobs and enhance our country’s energy security, all while providing a safer and more environmentally friendly method of transporting oil.”
