GOP Senators Push for Keystone XL Approval

“All 45 Senate Republicans are pressing President Barack Obama to make a decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline approval,” Roll Call reports.

The senators seek an answer from Obama “as soon as possible” on issuing a permit for the pipeline project.

Republicans have repeatedly pushed for approval of the pipeline, which had supermajority support, 62-37, in the Senate on a non-binding test vote last March.
