Congress wants it but the President says no. It being an oil pipeline that would transfer crude oil from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. The President Tuesday vetoing a bipartisan bill that was sent from Congress to the President. Congressman Doug LaMalfa says the project is not new territory to the US; however politics is in the way.
LaMalfa says the bipartisan bill that was vetoed by the President was handled by both the House and the Senate in an appropriate manner.
The President vetoed the bill saying, “…because this act of Congress conflicts with established executive branch procedures and cuts short thorough consideration of issues that could bear on our national interest – including our security, safety, and environment – it has earned my veto.”
It was only the third veto of Obama’s presidency.
