The Keystone Pipeline That Was Already Approved

Handout photograph shows the Keystone Oil Pipeline is pictured under construction in North Dakota

Environmental wackos have certainly made this into quite a joke.
Check it out:

Last week, the House of Representatives passed the Northern Route Approval Act, introduced by Representative Lee Terry (R–NE), which would authorize the construction of Keystone XL Pipeline.

It has been five years since TransCanada announced the Keystone XL expansion project, but we’re still without a pipeline and the jobs and the energy that come with it because no presidential permit for construction has been authorized. Even more infuriating is the fact that the U.S. has already granted one of those permits for the Keystone Pipeline System.

The Keystone XL Pipeline is just a portion of the larger Keystone Pipeline System. You can view a map of the entire system here. Any pipeline that crosses over the U.S.–Canadian border requires a review by the Department of State (DOS) and a presidential permit. Unbeknownst to many is the fact that the U.S. has already granted one of those presidential permits for the Keystone Pipeline System.
