WASHINGTON, D.C. – Karen Harbert, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber’s Global Energy Institute, issued the following statement regarding the decision by the Nebraska Public Service Commission (NPSC) to grant a permit that will allow construction of the Keystone XL pipeline in Nebraska:

“The Keystone XL pipeline project has unfortunately become the poster child for the need to reform our permitting process so that we may fully realize North America’s energy potential. We’re pleased that the project has cleared this final hurdle, and appreciate the Nebraska PSC’s thorough review and endorsement. After years of government delays, the decision as to whether to move forward with the pipeline now rests with the company that will be making the investment.”
