Washington: Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX), Vice Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, released the following statement on President Trump’s executive actions, which removed barriers for the completion of both the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Keystone XL Pipeline.
“It’s about time. After years of delays, President Trump has decidedly put American interests ahead of the harmfuk climate agenda of the last eight years. The approval of Keystone XL and Dakota Access will create jobs and continue to spur our economy,” stated Barton. “I commend President Trump for his early action and commitment to the energy sector.”
