Immediately upon swearing-in, President Joe Biden issued an Executive Order to halt construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, a project Congressman Stefanik helped advance in 2015. She issued the following statement on her staunch opposition to President Biden's irresponsible, job-killing order:
"One of my first votes in Congress was to authorize the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, a project with bipartisan support that reduces energy costs, creates thousands of jobs, increases America's economic competitiveness, and enhances our energy independence. It is appalling that one of President Biden's first actions, after repeatedly calling for unity, is to kill tens of thousands of American jobs during an economic crisis. This devastating move not only hurts the American worker and hampers our energy security, but it is also strongly opposed by our northern neighbor Canada -- a vital ally and economic partner."
