The president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber's Institute for 21st Century Energy recently spoke in support of President Donald Trump's decision to move forward with the Dakota Access Pipeline.
"The Dakota Access Pipeline and other energy infrastructure projects will help deliver much-needed affordable energy to communities around the nation, ensuring good jobs and continued investment," Karen Harbert said. "The Army Corps of Engineers has been allowed to proceed with the recommendation that it reached in the first place, which is to grant the final easement and allow the pipeline to be built. We look forward to additional progress on critical energy infrastructure by the Trump administration."
Prior to Trump's approval, the Dakota Access Pipeline was in limbo.
"For the last several months, the Dakota Access Pipeline has been used as a political football by extreme ideologues who want America to stop using fossil fuels," Harbert said. "Well, the Super Bowl is over, and it is time to end the games.”
The goals of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Institute for 21st Century are to provide citizens of the country and clean and prosperous economy. Additionally, it seeks to work in conjunction with business leaders and policymakers.
