No Reason to Block Keystone XL Pipeline, Boehner Says

Supporters of the long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada to Texas say that a new State Department report is the latest evidence the project should be approved.

The draft report, issued Friday, finds there would be no significant environmental impact to most resources along the proposed route. The report also says that other options to get the oil from Canada to Gulf Coast refineries are worse for climate change.

Environmentalists see the State Department report in a vastly different light, calling it inadequate and saying it fails to account for climate risks posed by the pipeline.

The draft report begins a 45-day comment period. The State Department will issue a final environmental report before Secretary of State John Kerry makes a recommendation.
