Schmitt, Other AG’s, Call on Biden to Restore Keystone Pipeline Permits

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, along with attorneys general from 15 other states, are calling on President Biden to restore building permits for the scrapped Keystone X-L pipeline. 

In a joint letter, Schmitt and the other 15 attorneys general, all Republicans, blame the Biden Administration’s cancellation of the project for helping drive up fuel prices. 

The Keystone X-L pipeline would have delivered crude oil from southern Canada into the U-S and created roughly 2,000 to 4,000 construction jobs. 

Environmental groups and Native American tribal leaders fought against it, saying it posed too great a risk to the environment. 

Biden canceled the building permits on his first day in office as president.
