(Bismarck, ND) -- U.S. Senators Kevin Cramer and John Hoeven are calling on the Biden Administration to release job loss numbers related to the Keystone XL Pipeline shutdown.
The U.S. Department of Energy was supposed to publish the job loss report by Sunday, February 13th. The North Dakota Republicans say construction was underway on the pipeline and that the effort employed more than 15-hundred workers.
The senators noted that if the project had been allowed to progress, it would have been providing about eleven-thousand jobs by the end of last year. Biden revoked the project's construction permit on his first day in office last year.
