Texas and 20 more states are suing the Biden White House for removing the permits to construct the Keystone XL pipeline. This week, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton stated he was being joined by prosecutors in Montana and other states to challenge President Biden’s ban on Keystone XL.
Once again, I’m taking on this reckless administration as they seek to destroy people’s livelihoods. Texas and Montana lead a coalition of states suing The Biden administration over the shutdown of the Keystone XL pipeline. #keystonepipeline https://t.co/i8DjhDPdLX

Paxton slammed Biden for not having the unilateral ability to stop the building of the pipeline, which was almost done. The lawsuit also said only Congress can decide on international pipelines.
Great discussion this morning with Canada-US Inter-Parliamentary Group. I shared #NY21 priorities for safely reopening our Norther Border, cross-border tourism and manufacturing strength, our military partnerships, and the importance of the #KeystoneXLPipeline.

Paxton also claimed President Biden’s actions on the pipeline were not constitutional and that his White House had destroyed jobs and undermined the nation’s energy independence.
