Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) voted in support of S. 1 – the Keystone XL Pipeline Approval Act. This bipartisan legislation that has passed out of the Senate would authorize construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

“I am proud to support this commonsense, bipartisan energy project,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “This project will create as many as 42 ,000 new jobs and help lower energy prices for hard working North Country families. The President will now have a chance to demonstrate that he is willing to work with Congress and stand with a strong majority of Americans who support the construction of this pipeline by signing this measure into law. I hope he does so quickly and I commend my colleagues in the House and Senate for their work on this important, bipartisan legislation.”
