Statement by Gov. Perry on State Department’s Keystone Pipeline Study

Friday, January 31, 2014  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement regarding the U.S. State Department's environmental impact study on the Keystone XL pipeline:

"Today's report means radical environmentalists are running out of excuses for forcing the delay of a project that will mean more jobs for Texans and greater energy security for North America. It's time to move this project forward and put an end to this bureaucratic red tape. If, as the president said in his State of the Union speech, he truly wants this to be a ‘year of action,' there would be no better way to kick it off than authorizing construction of this important project."
