Noem Votes to Put Keystone XL on the President’s Desk

kristi noem headshot May 21 2014Washington, D.C. – Rep. Kristi Noem today joined the U.S. House of Representatives in putting the Keystone XL Pipeline on the President’s desk.  H.R.3, the Keystone XL Pipeline Act, which would authorize the long-awaited pipeline’s construction and operation.  With passage in both the House and the Senate, H.R.3 will now go to the President for his signature.

“On energy policy, the President has said that we need to aim higher than a single pipeline, but I believe this pipeline is a good place to start,” said Rep. Noem.  “Further delaying Keystone XL would deprive South Dakota of good jobs, millions of dollars in revenue for cash-strapped counties, and relief for the roads and rails that are currently crowded with oil transit.  I am committed to doing all I can to see this pipeline through – no matter the legislative hurdles we have to cross to accomplish that.”

          Yes. And I called BS on myself. I thought I had heard earlier in the day the bill was on its way to the Senate. What I should have said the bill was sent to the veto graveyard. It doesn’t look at this point like the proponents have the votes to overturn a veto.

          Obama is deciding what he is going to extract from Republicans in exchange for letting them run their pipe.

          Hillary will be a lot easier to deal with.

    The employees working the lines are more than likely common criminals making more money than they have in a lifetime.

    They are bunked in man camps thousands of them.

    When the work day is done it’s party time with the drugs and young natives living near by. It’s called, trauma, life long depression since most if not all are poverty stricken.

    John Thune and Kristi Noem don’t turn a little rosy for the unspeakable shame they are committing. For God’s sakes how or why would they want to show their faces at all.
