Trump clearing way for Keystone XL ‘a step forward’ for energy independence

Jan. 24, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising President Donald Trump for approving the development of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines:

“President Trump’s executive actions clearing away the Obama administration obstacles to the Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines are an important shift in U.S. policy, a step forward in achieving North American energy independence. Our nation’s economic future is tied to domestic and North American energy development and the low costs for consumers that result. President Trump promised to move ahead with Keystone XL and he kept his promise. American workers should be smiling today as an estimated 42,000 jobs will be supported as a result of this decision according to prior Obama State Department assessments.”
