  • A group of 19 Republican AGs, led by Montana AG Austin Knudsen, wrote a letter to President Joe Biden urging him to support additional energy infrastructure in the wake of the Colonial pipeline shutdown.
  • The letter argues that the Colonial incident demonstrates the need for additional energy infrastructure, including the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, which is critical for avoiding energy supply disruptions, maintaining the nation’s status as a net energy exporter, and supporting national security.
  • As previously reported, a group of 21 Republican AGs, led by AG Knudsenand Texas AG Ken Paxton, recently sued the Biden administration over its revocation of a cross-border permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline, alleging that the revocation of the permit is an unconstitutional encroachment on the power of Congress to regulate international and interstate commerce and violates the Administrative Procedure Act.
