U.S. Senator John Boozman today released the following statement after Senate and House leadership reached a deal for a path forward on Keystone XL pipeline jobs and an extension of the payroll tax holiday:

“This is an important step forward to offering American families, businesses and workers some certainty in the coming year. This compromise paves the way for hundreds of Arkansas jobs for the Keystone XL pipeline, offers payroll tax relief to American workers and ensures that our health care providers continue to care for Medicare patients. While Congress will work on long-term solutions, American families deserve this compromise that is in the best interest of our immediate needs.”
