On Friday, January 10, Congresswoman Terri Sewell (R-Selma) and Congressman Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) both voted for H.R. 3, the Keystone XL Pipeline Act, to approve the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Representative Sewell said in a written statement, “After much deliberation, I voted in favor of constructing the Keystone XL Pipeline to strengthen our economy and create more jobs in Alabama and across this nation. Keystone XL will create thousands of construction jobs for welders, pipe fitters, and electricians during the pipeline’s construction and after its completion. As our economy continues to recover, I am confident that the hardworking men and women in Alabama’s 7th Congressional District and their families will enthusiastically welcome these skilled and well-paying construction and manufacturing jobs.”
