Owens joins bipartisan push for Keystone approval
February 4, 2013 - Chris Morris
U.S. Rep. Bill Owens, D-Plattsburgh, and 150 of his congressional colleagues have sent President Barack Obama a letter urging him to expedite a review of a revised plan for the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline.
"The project would transport Canadian oil to refineries in the Midwest and Southern United States," according to a press release issued by Owens' office. "The new plan is intended to address environmental concerns surrounding the project, while allowing the project to proceed."
"The Keystone Pipeline stands to increase economic activity between the United States and Canada while supporting America's energy independence," Owens said in a prepared statement. "After four years of waiting, it's time for Washington to make a decision and hopefully proceed with the pipeline."
I've posted a PDF version of the letter below.
