House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) appeared on Platts Energy Week yesterday to discuss a range of energy issues facing the committee and Congress, including the export of U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG), energy efficiency, and approval of the long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline. Upton also noted the committee’s plans to move legislation to help construct future cross-border energy projects and other necessary components of the Architecture of Abundance.

Ten days ago, the State Department announced it would delay its review of the Keystone XL pipeline indefinitely, sparking outrage among American workers and supporters of the project.
Although the Keystone clock stands at 2,042 days since TransCanada first filed its application to construct the landmark pipeline, the project has now been delayed indefinitely by the Obama administration. This, despite over 22,000 pages of exhaustive review by the State Department that confirmed the “all-of-the-above” project is safe and will have limited environmental impacts.
Upton: “Did the health law work to insure the uninsured? A simple check of the box could answer that question. Sadly, we may never know – and the administration seems just fine with that.”
