Max Baucus increases efforts for Keystone Pipeline
Montana Senator Max Baucus increased his efforts today to get the Keystone Pipeline built.
Baucus' statement comes after Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman approved the route through Nebraska on Tuesday. Baucus joined North Dakota Senator John Hoeven to lead a majority of senators in urging the president to finally approve the pipeline. Baucus says the primary concern regarding the Keystone Pipeline is getting people jobs.
Baucus says, "No more excuses. It's time to put people to work. It's time to put people to work in Montana, North Dakota and other parts of the country. There's no reason, no reason not to proof the Keystone Pipeline and finally get the job done. Let's get it going."
Governor Steve Bullock sent a letter to the president today, expressing strong support for the Keystone Pipeline project.
