New Route Approved, LIUNA Urges State Department, White House To Authorize Keystone XL Pipeline

"The Keystone pipeline will unlock thousands of good jobs for American workers"

WASHINGTON, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Terry O'Sullivan, General President of LIUNA - the Laborers' International Union of North America – issued the following statement about Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman's approval of a new route for the Keystone XL pipeline and the urgent need for final authorization of the jobs-creating pipeline project:

"Thank you, Governor Heineman, for completing the evaluation process of the new route for TransCanada's Keystone XL Pipeline project. Your approval removes one of the last barriers separating nearly 1 million unemployed U.S. construction workers from the tens of thousands of good jobs that will be created by this massive pipeline project.

"It is clear that this pipeline is in the national interest. I urge the State Department and the White House to move with all haste in completing the next steps in the authorization process. The Keystone pipeline will unlock thousands of good jobs for American workers and any further delay beyond the State Department's current schedule will only result in prolonged economic insecurity for thousands of Laborers who would otherwise be working."

The half-million members of LIUNA – the Laborers' International Union of North America – are on the forefront of the construction industry, a powerhouse of workers who are proud to build America.
