Dakotas Officials Unhappy With Pipeline Decision
January 18, 2012, 3:51 PM
BISMARCK, ND -
Officials in North Dakota and South Dakota say they are disappointed President Barack Obama's rejection of an application for an oil pipeline from Canada to Texas.
Obama said Wednesday an arbitrary deadline set by Republican lawmakers in a recent tax bill gave his administration too little time for a full review of the $7 billion Keystone XL project.
Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad of North Dakota says he believes the pipeline should be built and that it's in the national interest.
Republican South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard says the pipeline would create thousands of jobs and help strengthen the nation's economy and energy security.
