WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA) today commended the Trump Administration’s State Department for issuing a permit to authorize construction of the long awaited Keystone XL Pipeline. Today's welcomed authorization helps American families and businesses move forward amidst growing opposition to pipeline development by activist groups.
CEA President David Holt made the following statement:
"This is a huge step forward – not just for this project, but for American energy policy. The Keystone XL Pipeline will provide American refineries with a stable supply of oil, American drivers with lower gasoline and diesel prices, American workers with high-paying jobs, and the American economy with a much-needed shot in the arm."
