Legislative Scorecard

By combining votes on civil liberties, non-intervention, personal freedom, government spending, and monetary policy we are able to provide a more accurate measure of who supports the liberty agenda. We can also prevent legislators from claiming support when convenient but voting the other way when they think no one is watching. We are watching and with your help - we will ensure Congress knows it.

Bill Description

This bill, originally introduced by Sen. Hoeven (R-ND) would approve the construction of the long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline by declaring that a Presidential permit shall not be required.

Liberty for All's Position

Higher energy prices inflate the cost of goods, especially with respect to food and logistics. This often has a substantial effect on the poorest Americans as they can seldom afford higher prices for gas and food. Liberty For All supports common sense energy solutions and an energy independent U.S. This bill is a step in both directions. The approval of the Keystone XL pipeline would produce more domestic energy, create jobs, and lower costs for the everyday consumer.

Current Status

The committees assigned to this bill sent it to the House or Senate as a whole for consideration on March 18, 2013.
