Dear FreedomWorks member,
As one of our millions of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your Representative and urge him or her to support the Northern Route Approval Act, also known as H.R. 3. Introduced by Rep. Lee Terry (NE-2), this bill would allow for the completion of the Keystone XL Pipeline without any further delay or interference from the Obama administration and radical environmental special interests.
For the past two years, the White House has held the Keystone Pipeline hostage over alleged environmental concerns. Yet the president’s own administration appears to disagree with this hardline stance. The US State Department issued the preliminary findings of a study last month that raised no major environmental concerns or objections regarding the construction of the pipeline. Further, the pipeline would only be an 875 mile extension to America’s already existent 2.3 million mile fossil fuel pipeline network.
Considering these facts, it becomes obvious that opposition to the Keystone Pipeline is rooted not in concern for the environment, but rather in the desire of central planners to micromanage the economy and pick winners and losers in the energy market. This meddling has occurred for decades and has cost American taxpayers billions of dollars and has jeopardized the nation’s access to reliable and affordable energy. It’s time to get government out of the way and let the Keystone XL Pipeline be completed.
Thus, I urge you to contact your Representative in the House and tell them to support H.R. 3, the Northern Route Approval Act, today!
President and CEO
