Protecting American Energy Jobs Act will get Keystone XL pipeline completed and end Biden ban on leasing

ALG urges every member of the House to sign the discharge petition for H.R. 859

Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging every member of the House to sign the discharge petition for H.R. 859, the Protecting American Energy Jobs Act:

“Americans for Limited Government urges every House member to sign the discharge petition for H.R. 859, the Protecting American Energy Jobs Act. This bill will get the Keystone XL pipeline completed, overturn President Joe Biden’s leasing ban on federal lands and prohibit future moratoriums on energy leasing as well. Every member of Congress who wants to create jobs and ensure that America is energy independent should support this legislation. The Keystone XL pipeline has always been a political football, and is just one among many international pipelines from Canada. The fact is, holding up the completion of the pipeline has been unfortunate and does not even prevent tar sands oil from coming to America, it just puts the oil that doesn’t go into the pipelines onto trucks and trains at a greater cost. The futility of Obama and then Biden’s blocking of the pipeline has only exceeded by its absurdity.”
