19 AGs Urge Biden to Reinstate Keystone XL After Colonial Hack

Nineteen Republican state attorneys general on Monday urged President Joe Biden to reverse his cancelation of the Keystone XL pipeline project following the recent cyberattack of the Colonial Pipeline that created fuel shortages on the East Coast.

In a letter led by Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen, the group pointed to Biden’s own relaxing of environmental safety rules to help “secur[e] critical energy supply chains … alleviate shortages … [and] avoid potential energy supply disruptions to impacted communities.”
