Congressman Fred Upton (R-St. Joseph) calls on Congress to pass new, bipartisan legislation to remove the roadblocks that continue to needlessly delay approval of the Keystone XL pipeline project. Keystone is a $7 billion private-sector infrastructure project will bring thousands of jobs and greater energy security to the United States, but it has been tied up in regulatory review for over four years. Upton is a coauthor of the legislation -- the Northern Route Approval Act (H.R. 3) -- which would clear the remaining regulatory and legal hurdles, including removal of the project's requirement for a Presidential Permit. At the Energy and Power Subcommittee hearing, Upton welcomes testimony from Keith Stelter, president and co-owner of Delta Industrial Valves, Inc. in Niles, Michigan, whose business has grown in part because of expanding energy production in Western Canada. Upton visited the Berrien County manufacturer last April to highlight the company's continued success as well as to underscore the importance of the Keystone project to local businesses. In his testimony, Stelter explained how local companies like his will benefit from Keystone's approval as well as the detrimental impact that the administration's unnecessary delays have had on U.S. industry and jobs.
