National Petrochemical & Refiners Association President Charles T. Drevna issued the following statement today after House passage of the North American-Made Energy Security Act, which would require the Obama administration to decide by Nov. 1 whether to approve construction of the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to Texas:

“The construction of the Keystone XL pipeline would provide the American people with a dependable supply of energy from a close neighbor and ally, along with desperately needed jobs and a big boost to our economy. If America turns its back on Canadian oil, China will eagerly buy this precious resource, forcing our nation to turn to countries on the other side of the world for the energy needed to keep our economy running. The Senate should join the bipartisan majority in the House that voted today to approve this legislation to strengthen America’s economic and national security.”
