Cornyn: With Keystone Decision, Biden Kicking Texas Energy Workers While They’re Down

January 20, 2021

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) released the following statement in response to President Biden’s announcement he will cancel the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline:

“The biggest losers from this decision are the energy workers who stood to benefit from the pipeline,” said Sen. Cornyn.  “There’s no doubt our energy industry has already suffered during the pandemic, and President Biden’s answer is to kick the industry further down the well.  I hope this isn’t a preview of what’s to come from the Biden Administration, but rather that he’ll work with energy-producing states like Texas to find common ground on an all-of-the-above policy.”
