It’s long overdue we get the Keystone XL pipeline project in motion for Montana jobs and our American energy independence . . . $80 million in new local revenues, $16 million for Montana schools and universities, and over 800 high paying construction jobs are on the line.”

Increased property tax revenues from the [Keystone] XL Pipeline will have a major economic boost to Valley County. Property tax revenues will increase about 50% (over $7 million) in Valley County with construction of the [Keystone] XL Pipeline. The majority of the tax revenues will provide critical support to the impacted school districts. About $1 million will come to Valley County directly to support County services; this represents 20% of our current tax revenues.”

Keystone XL is about more than building a pipeline; it's about building relationships, supporting and building communities and bringing something positive to the many lives and communities we improve. For years, we have worked hard to be a trusted neighbour, building strong relationships with hundreds of communities along the pipeline route and beyond. We welcome the letters of support we receive from people, associations and communities we impact in a positive way.
