"After over four years of extensive study and debate, the facts about the
Keystone XL pipeline are clear: studies have concluded that the pipeline will
have no significant environmental impact; and Keystone is critical to
strengthening our national security and energy independence; and Canada's oil
sands will be developed regardless of what the U.S. does. Most of the
Keystone XL Pipeline system has already been built so the Department of State
should stop stalling and expeditiously grant TransCanada the Presidential
Permit necessary to complete the remaining 876 miles of pipeline."
