Reaction Of Senator Leahy To The State Department's Announcement Of A Delay In The Keystone/XL Review Process

“While this is a sign that the State Department has been listening during the comment period, there are many problems with this pipeline, and the tar sands project behind it, that go far beyond the particular route it would take.  This pollution-ridden project and its path through our country should not go forward at all.  The environmental harm and risks that are inseparable from this project far outweigh any benefits, and I hope the Administration will pull the plug on an inherently bad idea."
