    The Biden administration published a congressionally mandated report highlighting the positive economic benefits the Keystone XL Pipeline
    would have had if President Biden didn't revoke its federal permits.

    The report, which the Department of Energy (DOE) completed in late
    December without any public announcement, says the Keystone XL project
    would have created up to 59,000 jobs and would have had a positive
    economic impact of up to $9.6 billion.

    Immediately after taking office in January 2021, Biden canceled the
    pipeline's permits, effectively shutting the project down.

    "The Biden administration finally owned up to what we have known all
    along — killing the Keystone XL Pipeline cost good-paying jobs, hurt Montana’s economy and was the first step in the Biden administration’s
    war on oil and gas production in the United States," Sen. Steve Daines. R-Mont., said Thursday in a statement. "Unfortunately, the
    administration continues to pursue energy production anywhere but the
    United States."
