01/21/2021 Tweet - "Disappointing to see the new admin jump at the first opportunity to eliminate a project that provides high-paying jobs to 11,000 Americans & bolsters energy security. Blocking the Keystone XL pipeline -- after years of work already put in-- is a bad decision. SD delegation letter(Special Character)"
01/21/2021 Tweet - "Revoking permits for the Keystone XL Pipeline undercuts a serious infrastructure project, renewable energy growth, and rail relief for grain. This admin can't ask for unity & bipartisanship one minute but continue to push bad left-wing policy the next."
