Keystone XL Veto Means Nothing Without Final Rejection

 

For immediate release:

February 24, 2015

Following President Obama’s veto of Congressional pro-Keystone XL legislation, Rainforest Action Network Climate and Energy Program Director Amanda Starbuck issued the following statement:

“We’re glad the president vetoed this cynical, politically-motivated stunt. However, a veto on its own is not enough. This movement has fought for years to stop the Keystone XL pipeline and we will accept nothing less than a final rejection. Keystone XL miserably fails the climate test, and if President Obama wants to be remembered as a leader on climate, his only option is rejection.”
