Gardner Statement on Hillary Clinton's Keystone Announcement

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s announcement that she opposes the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline:

“Seven years after the application to build the Keystone XL Pipeline was filed, Hillary Clinton made the ‘Hard Choice’ to side with radical environmentalists against American jobs.

“Constructing the Keystone XL Pipeline would create jobs here at home, move us further towards North American energy independence, and help reduce our need for oil from overseas. I’m disappointed by Hillary Clinton’s choice.”

He sits on the Energy & Natural Resources Committee, the Foreign Relations Committee, the Commerce, Science, & Transportation Committee, and the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Committee, and is the Chairman of the Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Policy.
