Reaction of Senator Patrick Leahy To The State Department’s Response To A Senate Letter On The Process Of Considering The Keystone/XL Pipeline Project

"As problematic as the process has been, I have been even more concerned about the project's fundamental defects.  The environmental harm and risks associated with this project far outweigh any benefits, and I hope the Administration will use this opportunity to advance a long overdue change of course away from our dependence on polluting fossil fuels such as tar sands."
