The attorney general of Arkansas said on Fox Business Network on Friday that she is prepared to take the Biden administration to court over his cancellation of construction on the Keystone XL pipeline.
Leslie Rutledge (R) told Maria Bartiromo that she and 13 other states would file to force President Joe Biden to reverse his decision on the pipeline, but that she hopes Biden will change his mind on his own.
“We’re hoping that President Biden will reconsider and cancel his cancellation of the Keystone Pipeline,” Rutledge said. “Because these are real Americans, real Arkansans whose jobs are being lost because of this decision by President Biden.”
The decision also impacts the entire country by threatening energy independence.
“It’s also an economic impact, not only for those workers, but across the country, and particularly here in Arkansas. … But it’s also about energy independence for all Americans and for the United States of America,” she concluded.
