WASHINGTON— LCV President Gene Karpinski released the following statement in response to President Obama’s pledge to reject any attempt to advance the Keystone XL oil pipeline with the payroll tax cut extension:

“We strongly applaud President Obama for standing up to Big Oil’s allies in Congress who are leading a back-door attempt to advance the dangerous Keystone pipeline. On a day when the U.S House continues to cater to corporate polluters with the harmful REINS Act, the president should be commended for siding with the public interest over the special interests.”
