Womack Responds to Keystone Veto
Washington, February 24, 2015
Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today released the following statement in response to President Obama’s veto of the Keystone XL Pipeline Approval Act (S. 1), a bill which passed the House and the Senate with broad bipartisan support and authorized the construction, connection, operation, and maintenance of the Keystone XL pipeline:
“Today, President Obama showed his cards – instead of being willing to work with Congress in a bipartisan fashion, he folded to extreme environmental groups, putting radical interests above those of honest Americans, their jobs, and their economy.”
Congressman Steve Womack has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011 and serves on the House Appropriations Defense, Financial Services and General Government, and Labor-Health and Human Services subcommittees and the House Committee on the Budget.
