Heidi Heitkamp asks Obama to reverse course on Keystone XL pipeline

WASHINGTON – Heidi Heitkamp released a letter to President Barack Obama this morning urging him to reverse his administration’s decision rejecting the Keystone XL pipeline.

Heitkamp, a candidate for U.S. Senate and former North Dakota attorney general, highlights in the letter benefits of the Canada-to-Texas oil pipeline.

She mentions the creation of 20,000 jobs, reducing dependence on foreign oil and reducing cost of fuel for families and small businesses.
