House Members Blast Keystone XL Tar Sludge Pipeline

Many House members say Sec. Clinton's team bungled the environmental impact statement for a controversial oil sands pipeline.

June 1 Breaking News – Thirty four House members wrote to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today to request a meeting over the agency’s “failed” environmental review.

They issue a series of conditions State should take prior to continuing the permitting process and twice request a meeting with the Mrs. Clinton and EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson.

Among the conditions – an analysis of cumulative greenhouse gas emissions, an assessment of impacts toward meeting President Obama’s goals of reducing oil imports, an analysis of alternative routes for the pipeline, and several others.

Signer Rep. Chris Murphy sits on the influential House Foreign Affairs Committee and Reps.  Weiner, Inslee, Schakowsky, and Capps sit on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
