March 24, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Statement by American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) President and CEO Chet Thompson on the announcement of the U.S. State Department approval of the cross-border permit to advance Keystone XL pipeline:

“Today’s announcement of the U.S. State Department’s approval of the cross-border permit is a welcome shot in the arm for America’s energy producers who are eager to fulfill President Trump’s America First Energy Plan.
