And the President Donald Trump record for fostering job growth continues …
Friday, Trump announced via Twitter: “Today, I was pleased to
announce the official approval of the presidential permit for the
#KeystonePipeline. A great day for American jobs!”
Estimates are the pipeline, from Canada through several U.S. states
to the oil refineries on America’s coast, will bring 40,000 new jobs.
Even unions wanted Keystone — but Barack Obama didn’t. Why? His
radical environmental friends hated the thought of land being disturbed.
And Native Americans hopped aboard the anti-Keystone train in recent months, as well.
project isn’t shovel ready just yet; several activists have petitioned
Nebraska’s public service commission for the right to sue. State law
requires they show a personal effect from the pipeline — a personal
reason why the pipeline’s construction will impact their lives, their
properties, their businesses.
“Opponents asked the Nebraska Public Service Commission
Wednesday to let them intervene in the case, allowing them to file legal
briefs, cross-examine witnesses and present formal arguments alongside
pipeline developer TransCanada’s attorneys.
