U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, joined Energy and Commerce Chairman Greg Walden, R-Oregon, and Subcommittee on Environment John Shimkus, R-Illinois, in releasing the following statement after President Trump signed executive actions regarding the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines.

“We welcome today’s news and we’re looking forward to working with a president and an administration that value American energy affordability, jobs, security, and new infrastructure development. It is time for the federal government to stop picking winners and losers in the energy sector.”

Upton has been a long-time bipartisan leader in pursuing an “all-of-the-above” energy strategy and also working to ensure our pipeline infrastructure is as safe and secure as possible.
