"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Oklahoma and Trans Canada Turn their Backs on Obama on Southern Portion of Keystone Pipeline

There is no doubt in my mind and the minds of a lot of Oklahomans that Mary Fallin is the best Governor this State has ever had and this proves it.  Knew they had been working on the details of constructing the southern portion of the Keystone Pipeline which does not need State Department or Obama approval.  They got it done and now the southern part of the pipeline from Cushing, OK, to the refineries at Port Arthur on the Texas Gulf Coast will be built by Trans Canada bringing jobs to Oklahoma and Texas along with oil to the Texas refineries.

Our Governor should be the one running for President as she has plenty of experience and knows how to get things done but this Oklahoman is very happy she is not running and remains our Oklahoma Governor.  

Oklahoma is a state that is on the move for jobs, has a great quality of life, along with affordable living and hands down one of the best Governors in the Country.  Congratulations to Governor Fallin for getting this accomplished and making Oklahoma a state that business' want to relocate.
Governor Fallin Applauds TransCanada Decision to Begin Construction of Southern Portion of Keystone Pipeline 
OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin today applauded TransCanada’s decision to proceed with the construction of an oil pipeline from Cushing, Oklahoma to the U.S. Gulf Coast. The pipeline represents the southern leg of the Keystone XL Pipeline project that would transport oil from Canada and various U.S. markets to the Gulf Coast. 
“Connecting Cushing to oil markets in the Gulf Coast will provide both an immediate economic jolt to the state of Oklahoma as well as a long term boost to our energy sector,” Fallin said. “Construction of the pipeline alone will create 1,200 jobs, while increasing access to the important markets along the coast will help energy producers for many years to come. This is an important, positive step forward for Oklahoma, and my thanks go out to TransCanada for its leadership on this issue.” 
TransCanada also announced today that it plans to file a Presidential Permit application (cross border permit) in the near future for the Keystone XL Project from the U.S./Canada border in Montana to Steele City, Nebraska. Fallin once again called on President Obama to quickly approve the project. 
“The Keystone XL pipeline is exactly the kind of shovel-ready project that President Obama should be supporting,” Fallin said. “If the project is approved in its entirety, we can expect up to 20,000 construction jobs and as many as 250,000 total jobs to be created. Furthermore, the substantial upgrade to our energy infrastructure would help bolster the production of North American energy and wean the United States off its dependence on hostile oil regimes overseas. It’s a win-win project that is important to both our national security and our economic security.”
