A message from Senator Dan Coats <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/quorum_coats-iq/coats_ topbanner.jpg> Dear Friend, Thank you for signing up to receive my email newsletter. These newsletters will cover a variety of topics, including events happening in Indiana, legislation being considered in Congress, and my perspective on current issues. My hope is to keep you updated and informed on how issues in Washington may impact Hoosiers. I welcome your feedback.

For six years, President Obama has used every excuse in the book to avoid supporting the largest ready-to-build infrastructure project in the United States - the Keystone XL pipeline. Earlier this month, the Nebraska Supreme Court ruled that the state's governor has the authority to approve the project's route. This decision removes another flimsy excuse that President Obama has tried to hide behind. The $5.3 billion, privately-funded pipeline is the largest, ready-to-build infrastructure project in the United States and is supported by a bipartisan coalition in Congress. The complete route of the pipeline will run from Alberta, Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast and transport an additional 830,000 barrels of oil per day to U.S. refineries, which includes 100,000 barrels a day from the Bakken region of North Dakota and Montana. Last year, the State Department issued a report reaffirming prior studies that concluded the Keystone pipeline does not present any significant environmental risks. This report also predicts the pipeline's construction would support more than 40,000 jobs. There is absolutely no reason for President Obama to slow-walk this important project any longer, aside from politics. The Senate is currently debating legislation to approve the Keystone pipeline, and I will support this bill to put Americans to work and move our nation toward greater energy security. _____ My Response to the State of the Union <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx s-iq&crop=16038.18443646.5586488.7189397&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fwww.yout ube.com%2fwatch%3fv%3dTQdpiO3NiVE> Click here <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx s-iq&crop=16038.18443646.5586488.7189397&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fwww.yout ube.com%2fwatch%3fv%3dTQdpiO3NiVE> or on the image above to watch my response to the State of the Union Address. As President Obama acknowledged, the November election was a referendum on his policies. Voters clearly rejected those policies when they elected the largest Republican majority in the House of Representatives since World War II and gave the GOP control of the Senate. Unfortunately, it is clear that the president did not get the message. In his first State of the Union address to the new 114th Congress, President Obama doubled down on many of the same failed policies - tax hikes, increased regulation, more spending and bigger government. It is time for a new course. In the coming months, Congress will be sending legislation with Republican and Democrat support to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. President Obama must decide if he is willing to work with Congress on solutions to create jobs, increase wages and help hard-working families or continue the failed path of partisan gridlock.

Coats with Hoosiers

As an undergrad student, I visited Washington, D.C. with the National Association of Evangelicals. On Tuesday I enjoyed talking with students on the same trip, including several Hoosiers.
 

On Thursday, I met with Hoosiers who were in DC for the March for Life and thanked them for their efforts to
promote a culture that treasures life.
