America needs more infrastructure to ensure that the benefits of the U.S. energy renaissance are fully realized across the country. Benefits include affordable energy but also the jobs created to build pipelines, processing stations and other projects. Jobs like Kelly’s.

In the early going the Trump administration has signaled support for energy infrastructure by hastening approvals for the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines and by ordering expedited environmental reviews and approvals for high-priority infrastructure projects, including energy projects. As the president’s executive order said last week, promoting clean and safe development of U.S. energy is in the national interest – and advancing infrastructure is critically important to ensuring that Americans receive the full benefits from that energy.

With the Trump administration making good on its pledge to expeditiously approve the Keystone XL pipeline, we can look at the project for what it would be – a significant piece of North American energy infrastructure that holds the promise of supporting broad economic growth and strengthening American energy security.

The solution is more natural gas pipeline capacity, by building new lines or by expanding existing ones. New England policymakers should foster infrastructure by considering fair and appropriate financing mechanisms to help pay for new projects and by working to build community support for safe and responsible project development. This is the sensible path to keep New England’s consumers from paying more than is necessary for their energy.

Perhaps as soon as next week, oil will begin flowing through the Dakota Access Pipeline, connecting energy-producing areas in North Dakota with refineries in Illinois. In a recent legal filing the pipeline’s builder, Energy Transfer Partners, said oil would be put in the final part of the pipeline that crosses under Lake Oahe in North Dakota next week or the week after – but most likely next week. Completion of the 1,172-mile, $3.78 billion project represents important progress on a number of fronts, including infrastructure, U.S. energy security, jobs, state and local economies and the rule of law.

The president supports infrastructure construction, signing an executive order on Jan. 24 that calls for expediting pipeline permitting. By moving as quickly as possible to restore a quorum at FERC, the president will help ensure that projects receive the federal review and approvals they need to go forward.

President Trump’s executive orders clearing the way to restart the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines are welcome indeed. Both projects represent great opportunity for U.S. jobs, consumer benefits, economic growth and strengthened energy security. At the same time, the significance of the White House’s action goes beyond a pair of important energy projects. It’s a signal that long-needed energy infrastructure will once again be able to advance in this country – under regular-order reviews and approval processes – providing broad benefits to millions of  Americans.

With a new administration and a new Congress coming to Washington, Americans may hope for new policies to advance energy infrastructure construction in this country. Change is needed. Even though more than 80 percent of registered voters support additional infrastructure, and policymakers talk about it as a pressing national need all the time, a number of factors – including anti-progress activism and government red tape – delay, stall and/or threaten to block new pipelines and other essential energy projects. Forward-looking leadership will dismantle artificial impediments to safe development.

With the administration now claiming that Dakota Access’ already-completed environmental review must start again from square one, a move-the-goalposts campaign is plain for all to see – and with it an assault on basic fairness that could have dire consequences for our country for years to come.

In view of the facts, law and established procedure, the government’s latest decision to keep delaying the Dakota Access Pipeline project in North Dakota may only be explained as politics triumphing over legal due process and the public good.
