Grothman Says XL Pipeline Construction Means High Paying Jobs

Congressman Glenn Grothman says he’s impressed President Donald Trump took action in his first week as president to get the Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines back on track. He says it will provide high paying jobs for those constructing the pipelines including Michels Corporation in Brownsville if they get awarded a contract. He says Michels Pipeline is a great success story and if they have a chance to build the XL Pipeline it would be a boon to the area. He says it will also impact gasoline prices, which he says does have an effect on our economy. He says it disproportionately helps the middle class, which he says is a good thing. He says it is hard to believe for eight years we had to wait while they dilly dallied trying to prevent the pipeline from going through under Barack Obama.
