The South Dakota House of Representatives approved a concurrent resolution Wednesday to petition President Barack Obama to approve the Keystone XL pipeline. The resolution holds that the pipeline will reduce the nation’s dependence on foreign oil, create jobs, and generate tax revenue.
Senator Dan Ledermann says he traveled to Alberta, Canada, to tour tar sands facilities. The Keystone XL pipeline, if completed, will transport the sour crude from Alberta to the Gulf Coast.
