Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s executive action on Keystone pipeline and Dakota Access pipeline:

“I am grateful President Donald Trump has clearly demonstrated his commitment to an ‘all of the above’ energy policy by taking action to advance construction of the Keystone pipeline and the Dakota Access pipeline.

“Keystone pipeline would strengthen our nation’s energy security and would create jobs in South Carolina’s Second Congressional District where Michelin Tire Corporation in the Midlands and MTU America in the Aiken-Barnwell area produce earthmover tires and engines used for oil sand development.

“I look forward to working with President Trump and his nominee for Secretary of Energy, Governor Rick Perry, on continuing to create jobs and advance energy independence.”
