CNN: Obama administration pushes back Keystone decision
Washington (CNN) - The Obama administration announced Friday that it is extending the comment period on the State Department’s Keystone XL pipeline report – a move that could delay a final decision on the project indefinitely…
Pipeline supporter Rep. Lee Terry, R-Nebraska, also blasted the delay.
“Today, (President Obama) punted a tough decision in the name of political expediency,” Terry said in a statement sent to CNN.
“It’s shameful that as we begin spring construction season, that hundreds of my constituents will be denied an opportunity to go to work on a project that will help secure America’s energy future solely because the President wants to placate his political base in an election year.”
