House passes bill to force Obama decision on Canada-Texas pipeline

“House Republicans approved legislation Monday to force the Obama administration to make a decision in the coming months on a controversial proposed pipeline project that would carry oil from Canada to Texas,” The Hill reports Tuesday.

“Forty-seven Democrats voted in favor of the legislation…”

“The bill, authored by Rep. Lee Terry (R-Neb.), seeks to ensure that the administration expedites its Keystone XL review, which has dragged on for years while the State Department sought additional environmental analysis. The legislation would require that the Obama administration make a final decision on the pipeline by Nov. 1.”
