LCV Statement on Failed Attempt to Override Keystone Veto

Mar 4, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President of Gene Karpinski released this statement on the Senate’s failed attempt to override the President’s veto of the Keystone XL Pipeline bill:

“It is time Senator McConnell and Leader Boehner move on from this tired political fight to approve the dirty and dangerous Keystone XL pipeline. The Senators who stood with the president and opposed this veto override attempt deserve credit for knowing Americans want us to move on to real solutions – like growing clean energy.  As the President said in his State of the Union address, ‘We must set our sights higher than a single pipeline.’”
