Another ATP victory as House panel approves Keystone bill

A huge thank you to all the ATP supporters who bombarded Congress with their phone calls and e-mails as part of ATP’s FuelingJobs.com project.

“The House Energy and Commerce Committee on Tuesday approved legislation that would reverse President Obama’s rejection of the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline,” The Hill reports.

“Rep. Lee Terry’s (R-Neb.) bill — which passed the powerful committee in a 33-20 vote — is likely heading for the House floor next week as part of wider transportation and energy legislation.

“It would instruct the independent Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to issue a permit for TransCanada Corp.’s proposed pipeline within 30 days, taking the issue out of the State Department’s hands.”

Senate Republicans have their own bill to overcome Obama’s job-killing radicalism.
