Weekly Republican Address 3/30/13: Rep. Lee Terry: 'The Keystone XL pipeline is a no-brainer'

By Susan Duclos

Upping the pressure on Barack Obama to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline, which has bipartisan support in both the democratically controlled U.S. Senate and the Republican controlled House of Representatives, as well as the majority of Americans, the GOP's weekly address by Rep. Lee Terry (R-Neb.), calls the Keystone XL pipeline a "no-brainer."

Keystone XL Pipeline Project

The Keystone XL Pipeline is a proposed 1,179-mile (1,897 km), 36-inch-diameter crude oil pipeline beginning in Hardisty, Alta., and extending south to Steele City, Neb. This pipeline is a critical infrastructure project for the energy security of the United States and for strengthening the American economy.

Along with transporting crude oil from Canada, the Keystone XL Pipeline will also support the significant growth of crude oil production in the United States by allowing American oil producers more access to the large refining markets found in the American Midwest and along the U.S. Gulf Coast.
