CEA Op-Ed in the Tallahassee Democrat: Keystone Pipeline is in Florida's Best Interest
March 2, 2014
Kevin Doyle, Executive Director for Consumer Energy Alliance of Florida, authored an op-ed on the importance of the Keystone XL Pipeline to Florida. It was published this weekend in the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper.
"For the last five years, we have been waiting for the Keystone XL pipeline’s approval. Already subjected to years of government study and delay, the pipeline project has now undergone multiple environmental reviews by the State Department, including a recent evaluation that found the pipeline’s construction and operation would have no significant impact.
That’s right. We are now one step closer to the finish line. Now President Obama is faced with the decision on what is within the nation’s interest. Does he choose more U.S. jobs, energy security and stable supplies of energy from our northern neighbor — or does he choose energy dependence?
Determining the nation’s interest in the Keystone XL project becomes clear when you evaluate why ending the five-year delay in approving the presidential permit needed for construction will help U.S. consumers."
