This week, Kelly Ayotte voted to advance legislation that would disregard the federal review process and force construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. A thorough State Department review ensures that the views of local communities are heard, and that the environmental impacts and safety concerns of any project are considered.
Kelly Ayotte’s vote to cut out the voices of local communities isn’t just bad for this project; it also sets a dangerous precedent for projects here in New Hampshire like Northern Pass, the Portland-Montreal pipeline, and the Kinder Morgan pipeline.

While Kelly Ayotte likes to claim that she supports local input on projects here in New Hampshire, her vote to bypass the normal review process for the Keystone XL pipeline speaks louder than her words.
Will you add your voice to tell Kelly Ayotte that the input of local communities matters?
