Bishop Reaction to Trump Actions on Keystone XL, Dakota Access Pipelines


WASHINGTON, D.C., January 24, 2017 -

House Committee on Natural Resources Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement in reaction to President Trump’s actions related to the Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines:

“I’m glad this President understands we can create more jobs and provide affordable energy through domestic resource development - but we need infrastructure to make it happen. This action is a path forward on critical infrastructure projects that should have already moved forward. We have a new era before us of investment, jobs and energy security that I look forward to coordinating with the Trump administration.”
