WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (IN-02) released the following statement today after the House passed H.R. 5682:
“My House colleagues and I overwhelmingly supported a plan to create 9,000 shovel-ready jobs for hardworking Americans. Not only will this project contribute $3 billion toward the US economy, but it will also strengthen our energy security. I urge my Senate colleagues to take swift action in passing this legislation that will give Americans access to a safe, stable supply of oil from an important trading partner.”
Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District in Indiana, where she serves as a member of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, House Armed Services Committee, and House Budget Committee.
