Bipartisan Legislation Will Lower Costs and Spur Economic Growth by Preventing Further Delays

Washington, D.C. - National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Senior Vice President for Policy and Government Relations Aric Newhouse issued the following statement today in support of H.R. 1938, the North American-Made Energy Security Act:

"Completion of the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada will provide manufacturers with a stable North American energy source that will help prevent supply disruptions and create an estimated 130,000 new jobs in the process. Reliable, accessible and affordable energy is critical for manufacturers to compete in today's global marketplace. Secure sources of energy will help to spur economic growth and job creation.

Approval of the pipeline has languished in the bureaucratic red tape of studies and permitting delays for far too long. Further delaying the pipeline will deny manufacturers and consumers alike access to an affordable and reliable source of oil.

Now is the time to encourage economic growth and job creation, and the Keystone XL pipeline has the potential to do both."
