Governor Scott Walker says he is urging Secretary of State John Kerry to move swiftly on the expansion of the Keystone Pipeline.

Walker says the expansion of the pipeline is the chance to have a new North American energy source. “Expanding the pipeline will produce 830,000 barrels of oil per day, which will have an enormously positive economic impact”, says Walker.

The project- if approved, would carry oil from Alberta, Canada to the refineries in the Gulf Coast. Supporters say the pipeline will improve U.S. energy security. Environmentalists say the tar sands will prove disastrous for global warming.

Public comments to the State Department regarding the pipeline can be emailed to keystonecomments@state.gov.
