The NAM Urges President Obama to Approve the Pipeline as Soon as Possible to Boost Jobs

Washington, D.C., – National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Vice President of Energy and Resources Policy Ross Eisenberg issued this statement after Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman approved the new Nebraska route for the Keystone XL pipeline:

“Gov. Heineman’s decision is another positive step that we hope will clear the way for final approval of the Keystone XL pipeline by President Obama. The pipeline is an immediate job creator—its construction will create tens of thousands of manufacturing and construction jobs, plus significantly more indirect ‘spin-off’ jobs.

Access to affordable energy sources is critical to manufacturers’ ability to compete in the growing global marketplace. The Keystone XL pipeline will provide manufacturers with another valuable energy source from a neighboring ally. We urge President Obama to approve the Keystone XL pipeline as soon as possible to help get Americans back to work.”
