WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) today released the following statement in regard to President Donald J. Trump’s executive action to advance two pipeline projects in the United States:

“I applaud President Trump for taking action today that will benefit American manufacturers, workers and families. Approval of the Keystone Pipeline and other energy infrastructure projects was held up by political pressures upon the previous administration. This type of artificial red tape must be removed to unleash the true economic potential we have in America."
