WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, today issued the following statement on the Nebraska Supreme Court ruling upholding the state’s approval of the current Keystone XL pipeline route through the state.

“Today’s court decision wipes out President Obama’s last excuse,” Murkowski said. “He’s had six years to approve a project that will increase U.S. energy supplies and create closer ties with our nearest ally and neighbor, and he’s refused to act. Regardless of whatever new excuse he may come up with, Congress is moving forward.”

Murkowski, chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, moved bipartisan legislation out of the committee on Thursday approving the Keystone XL pipeline.
