McCaskill Cites ‘good news’ on Keystone XL Pipeline Progress

Final environmental impact statement of Keystone—a project strongly supported by McCaskill—completed by State Department

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill today released the following statement after the U.S. State Department completed a final environmental impact statement of the Keystone XL Pipeline:

“Completion of the Keystone XL pipeline would only continue to grow our economy and strengthen our national security. I hope this report moves the President toward giving final approval for the project.”

McCaskill previously urged then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to speed up the lengthy review process for the northern portion of the pipeline, citing the significant potential for jobs and increased energy security the pipeline's construction would mean for the United States. McCaskill has long been a supporter of the swift approval and construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, previously voting to force approval of the project.
