23 states now suing Biden admin over Keystone XL Pipeline as Alaska, Florida AGs Join Fight

With Florida and Alaska joining, 23 states are now suing the Biden administration over the cancellation of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Per the Washington Examiner “Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody and Alaska Attorney General Treg Taylor were added to a complaint filed with the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Thursday, bringing the total number of states in the lawsuit to 23.”

Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen said “The Constitution is clear that presidents do not have the power to regulate foreign and interstate commerce or to unilaterally undo an act of Congress.”

“The fallout from the Colonial pipeline cyberattack made it very clear that we need more energy infrastructure, not less. The Keystone XL would get more oil, including Montana oil, to American refineries to be sold to American consumers,” he also said.

“Several exhaustive studies undertaken by the Obama State Department concluded the Keystone XL pipeline would boost the U.S. economy, create American jobs, and safely transport oil throughout the country without increasing greenhouse gas emissions,” Knudsen argued.
