13-KeyXL-G on Jan 17, 2013

Letter: Letter from Governors in US and Canada to Pres. Obama
Source: Letter from Governors
Dear Mr. President,

We respectfully urge you to move forward on the Keystone XL Pipeline project. The energy relationship between the US and Canada is vital to the future of both our countries.

  • Crucial to US energy security: With the pipeline, US imports from Canada could reach twice what is currently imported from the Persian Gulf.
  • Thousands of jobs: The pipeline project is expected to create thousands of manufacturing and construction jobs and generate tax revenues in local economies along the pipeline route.
  • Efficient and reliable: We are committed to responsible stewardship of our shared environment. Pipelines remain the most efficient method of transporting large volumes of crude oil, but we also recognize the need to take the measures necessary to protect the environment and public health and safety.
We consider the Keystone XL Pipeline fundamentally important to the future economic prosperity of both the US and Canada.

Also see the related House of Representatives letter on Keystone XL.
