WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works (EPW), released the following statement on President Trump’s executive order advancing the Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines. 

"I applaud President Trump for advancing the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines,” said Barrasso. “For far too long, politics have been inserted into the basic functions of government. If we are going to grow our economy, Washington must provide a timely and predicable permitting process. These projects will create jobs and improve our nation’s energy security."
