Mo House Endorses American Oil and the Keystone Pipeline
Barnes for Missouri
Representative Jay Barnes
March 21, 2012
I’m pleased to report the House passed HCR 37 by voice-vote this morning, a resolution I sponsored calling on Congress and the President to support continued oil exploration in the United States and Canada and the Keystone XL Pipeline. I’d rather get my oil from Canadian Mounties and the Bakken Reserve in Montana and the Dakotas than from Middle Eastern despots. American energy exploration is good for national security and both short and long-term job creation.
