WASHINGTON - Rep. Lee Terry, R-Neb., led a group of more than 145 House members on Tuesday urging President Barack Obama to swiftly approve the Keystone XL pipeline.
"All studies show that this project will have minimal environmental impact and a substantial economic benefit to our country," they wrote in the letter. "In light of the recent events in North Africa, we need to be investing in energy infrastructure to control our own resources. ... We need to make our country energy independent."
