The TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline is a major pipeline project that will run from Canada to Texas bringing oil to the US. Construction of the pipeline will help reduce our dependence on Mideast oil and create good union construction jobs. LIUNA members and other skilled building trades workers have already been enlisted to complete the project.
However, the project is currently in limbo pending the results of administrative reviews. Pipelines like Keystone have operated successfully for decades and are the safest, most reliable way to transport crude oil. The proposed TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline would be a secure energy lifeline for America.
It will unlock good, family-supporting jobs for America at a time when families are losing their homes and desperately need good jobs.
The reasonable thing is to build the pipeline, create jobs here and reduce our dependence on oil from hostile regimes, instead of caving to fringe extremists and seeing that oil go to China.
