Press Release

BALLWIN, MO – Congresswoman Ann Wagner released the following statement regarding the Obama Administration’s rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline:

“Once again, President Obama has doubled down on his opposition to common sense energy solutions. After a remarkable seven years of studying the issue, this Administration has made it painfully clear that the energy independence and thousands of new jobs promised by the Keystone XL pipeline are not enough to outweigh special interest groups in Washington. We cannot continue to let out-of-touch bureaucrats and so-called progressives stifle our energy future with elaborate arguments about environmental concerns that are not rooted in reality. The American people deserve better from the White House, and I will continue to fight for real energy solutions that will lower costs for Missouri families.”
