Statement of Jenny Beth Martin on Keystone passage

We commend the House of Representatives for its passage of S. 1, the Keystone XL pipeline bill. This legislation would put Americans to work with high paying, private sector jobs.
Most important, as we note that our embassy in Yemen has been abandoned, it would reduce our dependence on foreign oil from the Middle East. We urge President Obama to put the needs of Americans first, and sign this legislation for the security of the Republic. And we’d remind him that it enjoys the support of Democrats and Republicans.
