WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner released the following statement on President Obama’s rejection of the Keystone XL oil pipeline:

Congressman Sensenbrenner:  “The President’s rejection of the Keystone XL oil pipeline is yet another example of his radical personal agenda getting in the way of what's best for the country. Rather than creating thousands of jobs and increasing America’s energy independence, he chose to cave to the demands of environmental extremists and enhance his own liberal legacy.”
