February 12, 2015 | Austin, Texas | Press Release

Texas Governor Greg Abbott today joined a coalition of 24 governors in sending a letter to President Barack Obama encouraging the President to reconsider his threat to veto legislation approving the Keystone XL pipeline. Legislation authorizing the pipeline recently passed with bipartisan votes in both chambers of Congress.

Referencing “the significant economic and energy security benefits this project would provide for those states along the route of the pipeline, and for the entire nation,” the letter goes on to state, “With one stroke of a pen, you have the power to give thousands of Americans the shot at a good-paying job that will help them provide for their families and get ahead in a tight economy.”
