Keystone XL Pipeline Opponents Invite Obama to Beef and Beer Summit

Dec 12, 2012
(Omaha World-Herald)

Eighteen Nebraskans opposed to the Keystone XL pipeline have invited President Obama to a Beef and Beer Summit to talk about their concerns with the controversial pipeline.

The opponents wrote to counter a letter sent to the president last month by 18 United States senators.

The bipartisan group of senators, which included Nebraska Sen. Mike Johanns, a Republican, urged Obama’s support for the pipeline and requested to meet with him.

The opponents’ letter said they, too, are bipartisan.

“While none of us carry a prestigious nametag other than farmer, rancher, mom, dad, grandma or grandpa, we too represent the concerns of a lot (of) folks here at home,” they said.
