Gov. Greg Abbott on Feb. 12 announced he had joined a coalition of 24 governors in signing and sending a letter to
President Obama that urges the nation’s chief executive “to reconsider his threat” to veto legislation approving the
Keystone XL pipeline. “With one stroke of a pen, you have the power to give thousands of Americans the shot at a good-paying job that will help them provide for their families and get ahead in a tight economy,” the letter says.
