Governor Pence Urges President Obama to Approve the Keystone XL Pipeline

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO): Governor Mike Pence sent a letter to President Obama, urging the President to approve the Keystone XL pipeline. This comes on the heels of White House officials announcing that President Obama was putting his final decision on hold until a later time. In the letter, Governor Pence wrote:

“Though Indiana is not part of the pipeline route, Indiana still stands to benefit economically from the pipeline, especially our manufacturing industry,” said Governor Pence. “Indiana companies build engines for large trucks, pump controls, and other products that will be used during the construction and operation of the pipeline, meaning increased jobs and economic activity in Indiana.”
