Gov. Ricketts Sends Letter to President Obama Urging Approval of Keystone XL

Keystone XL will bring good jobs, property tax revenue to Nebraska

Lincoln – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts announced that his office sent a letter to President Barack Obama in support of the Keystone XL pipeline project. In his letter, the Governor urged the Obama Administration to issue a permit for the pipeline:

“Like many other Nebraskans, I support the revised route and the construction of the pipeline; however, you alone have the power to approve this important infrastructure project that will bring good-paying jobs and much-needed tax revenue to Nebraska counties during construction and for years to come. Consequently, I urge you to issue a Presidential Permit for the Keystone XL pipeline.”
