Oklahoma Officials Blast Obama for Pipeline Move

KSCB News - January 19, 2012 6:08 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -Governor Mary Fallin and other elected
officials are blasting President Barack Obama for his decision to
reject a permit to build a Canada-to-Texas oil pipeline that would
cross Oklahoma.
Obama on Wednesday announced that he turned down the proposal
for the 1,700-mile pipeline because Congress gave him a 60-day
deadline that did not allow for a thorough review of the project.
Fallin says the rejection of the pipeline will cost the state an
estimated 1,200 construction jobs and more than $1 billion in new
investment in Oklahoma.
A TransCanada official said last week that if approved, the next
phase of the project was to build a large pipeline from the oil
storage center in Cushing, Oklahoma, to refineries along the Texas
Gulf Coast.
