Toomey’s Statement on Passage of Keystone Pipeline
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) praised today’s Senate vote to pass the Keystone XL pipeline bill.
"Today’s vote is a strong, bipartisan signal to the President that the American people are ready for the thousands of good jobs the Keystone XL Pipeline will support," said Sen. Toomey.
"The bill we passed is a common-sense, bipartisan measure that increases our energy security and grows our economy. Hopefully, the White House will reconsider its opposition to a pro-jobs infrastructure project that lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have endorsed.
"After watching years of dysfunction, it’s also refreshing to see the Senate getting back to work, voting on amendments, and allowing more open debate. With new leadership in charge, we have restored the Senate to the deliberative body it long was, which is healthy for our democracy and helps ensure that our constituents are best served."
