Keystone Rejection

API President and CEO Jack Gerard comments on the President's rejection of the Keystone XL Pipeline. "For the president to suggest he supports jobs and then rejects the largest shovel-ready project in America today makes you really question how serious he is about job creation. We ask ourselves, Mr. President, what are you thinking?"

The Keystone XL pipeline will greatly enhance America's energy security. With your approval, this shovel-ready project will provide 20000 jobs in construction and manufacturing in the next two years, and add tens of thousands of additional jobs throughout the economy in other sectors including service, retail and distribution. Enhancing our energy partnership with Canada will strengthen America's energy future.
