WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski released this statement following reports today that a consultant who played a key role in drafting the State Department’s Keystone XL analysis had previously worked for TransCanada, the company that wants to build the pipeline:  

“This is deeply concerning. The State Department should re-evaluate all parts of their analysis that involved the input of anyone who worked for TransCanada. This revelation reaffirms that their analysis is unacceptable, and that there should be no rush to approve this harmful project.”
