WASHINGTON, DC (January 19, 2012) – Today the American Highway Users Alliance expressed deep disappointment at the White House’s decision to reject the proposed Keystone XL pipeline project.
Highway Users President and CEO Greg Cohen remarked, “The White House had the opportunity to not only create thousands of much-needed jobs but the chance to increase North American energy independence. The Keystone Pipeline would have given our nation’s economy a much-needed boost at a time when so many Americans are desperately seeking work. For motorists, the pipeline would have improved fuel price stability in an unstable world.
“While we are dismayed by this final outcome, we pledge to continue working with Congressional lawmakers to re-open this issue and get Keystone XL built to help us meet our country’s energy needs.”
The American Highway Users Alliance represents motorists, RV enthusiasts, truckers, bus companies, motorcyclists, and a broad cross-section of businesses that depend on safe and efficient highways to transport their families, customers, employees, and products. Highway Users members pay the taxes that finance the federal highway program and advocate public policies that dedicate those taxes to improved highway safety and mobility.
