Friend —

I wanted to make sure you heard the news: Yesterday, the State Department denied the permit to build the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

President Obama had made clear that a project of this magnitude — with high stakes for public health, the environment, and our country’s energy supply — needed a thorough review. But Republicans in Congress demanded an up-or-down decision in just 60 days, cutting short a process that was already under way with an unreasonable deadline.

Our opponents have some powerful friends in the oil industry, and they’re fighting back hard.

Get the full story — and say you stand with the Obama administration’s effort to protect the environment, develop our natural resources responsibly, and create jobs:

National Policy Director
