Keystone Meeting

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

A local spotlight will shine on the Keystone XL pipeline Tuesday.

Local and national leaders will gather at MetraPark for a discussion surrounding the pipeline.

The talk will be moderated by Yellowstone County Commissioner, Bill Kennedy, and will feature panelists such as Rear Admiral Donald P. Loren of the US Navy and Veterans For Energy.

Loren says Veterans For Energy is an organization which supports the Keystone XL pipeline.

"It's an easy decision to make. It's for the benefit of the Nation. It's for the benefit of our national security, and I believe the last environmental report from the State Department is the last thing required to make the right decision," said Loren.

The public is invited to attend, but you must contact Barb Skelton of Montana Energy Forum. You can email her at skelgatz@earthlink.net or call 406-245-4076.

Admiral Loren acknowledges the argument the pipeline would damage the environment, but he says the U.S. can use its abundant resources and still be good stewards of the planet.
