WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) today issued the following statement after the passage of the Keystone XL Pipeline Act:

“I am encouraged that both parties came together to pass the Keystone XL Pipeline Act, a commonsense jobs and infrastructure bill that will spark economic growth and make America more energy secure. The Keystone XL pipeline would support thousands of good-paying jobs across a wide range of industries and will be done in an environmentally conscious manner, which is why the project was ultimately given a green light by the State Department. I urge President Obama to sign this legislation into law in light of the broad bipartisan effort in support of its passage, as well as the vast economic benefits it would have for our nation.”
