Today Energy and Commerce Committee Ranking Member Henry A. Waxman sent a letter to Mrs. Deborah Hohlt, who, according to lobbying disclosure documents filed with the U.S. Senate, was retained by the State of Indiana to lobby regarding the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.

Given that the proposed pipeline route would not pass through or nearby the State of Indiana, nor does it appear that Indiana would particularly benefit from any economic activities associated with the construction of the pipeline, Rep. Waxman is requesting a briefing in order to better understand the State's unusual interest in Keystone XL. In addition, TransCanada has predicted that oil prices would increase in Indiana and other Midwestern states as a result of the Keystone XL pipeline project.

The full text of the letter is below and also available online.
