Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen slammed the Biden administration, Tuesday, for their economically agonizing decision to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline for a “more dangerous” energy alternative – a major impediment to the state’s and nation’s economy.
Knudsen argued that the Department of Energy’s report on the Keystone XL Pipeline’s transformative economic impact is a “justification” of what he has been touting since the President ordered the cancelation.
“This was going to be a huge economic boom, not just to Montana, but to the entire country. Depending on whose numbers you look at in the Department of Energy report, they admit this would this project was going to create somewhere between 16,000-60,000 jobs in the U.S. Not to mention billions in revenue. It’s pretty stunning to me that the administration just kind of swept this under the rug and released it late on a Friday. But that’s to be expected,” the Montana Attorney General explained on “Mornings with Maria.”
