Have you seen the legislation to authorize construction and operation of the Keystone XL Pipeline connecting Canada’s tar sands oil deposits with American refineries? Most people have not.
The new Legislation would declare that a Presidential permit is not required to construct the pipeline, a move made following President Biden’s decision to rescind the border crossing permit.
New President Joe Biden halted work on the Keystone XL Pipeline by executive order just hours after being inaugurated as President of the United States in January. Many thought that was game over, again, for the Zombie Pipeline known as the KXL. But was that the death blow?
The legislation called “Keystone XL Pipeline Construction and Jobs Preservation Act” is designed to authorize the continued construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline following President Biden’s decision to revoke the cross-border operation permit.
On board are – U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Steve Daines (R-Mont.), along with Sens. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), James Risch (R-Idaho), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), James Inhofe (R-Okla.), John Hoeven (R-N.D.), Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), Bill Cassidy (R-La.), and Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) so far.
After blaming fuel shortages for no power in Texas, more people are considering the past avenues.
If I’ve learned anything about the KXL, it is that “It’s not over till it’s over.”
