WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on President Trump’s Executive Order clearing the way for the Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines to move forward.

“This was a great decision by President Trump to approve the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipeline projects.
“I was one of the first members of the United States Senate to visit the Canadian oil sands to see first-hand how these resources could benefit our country. The choice is simple - build the pipeline, create jobs in the United States, and lessen our dependence on oil from the Middle East.
“We need oil and Canada has the means to deliver it to us. There's nothing more common-sense than expanding our long-standing, mutually beneficial relationship with Canada. I applaud this decision.”
