About BRT

Washington — Following the announcement of President Trump’s executive action to advance the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, Nicholas K. Akins, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Electric Power and Chair of the Business Roundtable Committee on Energy and Environment, today released the following statement:

“America’s business leaders applaud President Trump’s executive action to advance the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines.
 
“The President’s decision is a major victory for workers and American families who will benefit from the jobs and economic growth that will surely follow the new North American oil that the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines are expected to deliver to U.S. Gulf Coast refineries.”
