Time to approve the pipeline



Published: Thu, February 6, 2014 @ 12:00 a.m.

Minot (N.D.) Daily News: Enough is enough — unless, apparently, you are President Barack Obama, determined to please your environmentalist supporters. But what about the rest of us? Are other Americans not entitled to some consideration?

Last week, the Environmental Protection Agency revealed it can find no reason to reject the proposed Keystone XL pipeline for environmental reasons.

The pipeline would carry hundreds of thousands of barrels of Canadian oil to the U.S. every day. But throughout his presidency, Obama has stalled on making a decision on whether to approve construction. His excuse has been that the State Department needed to complete a review of the project’s environmental impacts.

Now that the review is complete, Obama’s next step is to approve the pipeline, right?

Wrong. The White House says numerous federal agencies and the public must weigh in on the project. So must Secretary of State John Kerry, because the project crosses the border between the United States and Canada.
