Stand with the Obama Administration on Keystone XL

This petition had 3,292 supporters

The State Department denied the permit to build the Keystone XL oil pipeline after congressional Republicans put it on an irresponsible and arbitrary timeline.

President Obama had made clear that a project of this magnitude—with high stakes for public health, the environment, and our country's energy supply—needed a thorough review. But Republicans in Congress demanded an up-or-down decision in just 60 days, cutting short a process that was already under way with an unreasonable deadline.

Our opponents have some powerful friends in the oil industry, and they're fighting back hard.

Stand with the Obama administration's effort to protect the environment, develop our natural resources responsibly, and create jobs.
