Corker Statement on Trump Executive Order to Advance Completion of Keystone XL Pipeline

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today made the following statement after President Donald J. Trump announced the signing of an executive order to advance completion of the Keystone XL pipeline. The Obama administration previously denied approval for the final segment of the Keystone XL pipeline in 2015 after years of exhaustive study and delays.

“I am pleased years of illogical and political delays preventing completion of the Keystone pipeline have finally come to an end,” said Corker. “The Keystone pipeline is good for the economy and better for the environment than alternative methods of transporting the oil. Developing more of our domestic resources supports economic growth and the energy security demands of our country.”
