U.S. Congressman Bob Latta holds a one-on-one meeting with Fostoria resident Jack Brubaker during Monday’s annual Courthouse Conference.
Latta supports the construction of the 1,179-mile TransCanada Keystone Pipeline from Hardisty, Alberta, to Steele City, Neb. He said the pipeline is not just good for the national economy, but also for the local economy.
"The Keystone Pipeline will bring 1,700 jobs to northwest Ohio," Latta said. "That's jobs to support the piping industry, machinery and tires that would support people working on site or in Alberta."
It will bring 800,000 barrels of oil into the U.S., instead of being shipped to China, he said.
