Rounds Statement on TransCanada’s Termination of the Keystone XL Pipeline Project

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) released the following statement today after TransCanada (TC Energy) confirmed the termination of the Keystone XL Pipeline Project:

“President Biden’s decision to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline Project is a huge mistake,” Rounds said. “This will hurt us both economically and environmentally for years to come. Now, instead of using an efficient and environmentally friendly pipeline to transport petroleum, petroleum will be transported by road and rail which is much more dangerous. TC Energy had committed to net zero emissions across the project. It’s clear that the president listened to the loudest left-wing voices in the room rather than looking at the facts.”
