McConnell Statement on President’s Veto of Keystone Jobs and Infrastructure Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C.U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement after President Obama vetoed the Keystone jobs and infrastructure bill:

“It’s extremely disappointing that President Obama vetoed a bipartisan bill that would support thousands of good jobs and pump billions of dollars into the economy. It passed both houses of Congress with strong bipartisan support and it’s a priority for organized labor as well. Even the President’s own State Department says construction of this jobs and infrastructure project would result in only minimal environmental impact. Even though the President has yielded to powerful special interests, this veto doesn’t end the debate. Americans should know that the new Congress won’t stop pursuing good ideas, including this one.”
