WASHINGTON D.C. — On today’s announcement that Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman has approved the new route for the Keystone XL pipeline that avoids the environmentally-sensitive Sand Hills region, IER Senior Vice President Daniel Kish issued the following statement.

“Today’s announcement that Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman approved the revised route for the Keystone XL pipeline will be welcome news to thousands of Americans ready to start working on this important project. The president must now act to permit the full development of the Keystone XL pipeline, which will increase our North American energy security and serve our national interest. It is time for the United States to experience the economic benefits that the pipeline’s final construction will generate.”
