Senate Will Hold Hearing on Keystone XL

Posted March 10, 2014 at 9:18am

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez (D-NJ) “is finally making good on his long-standing pledge to hold a hearing on the proposed Keystone XL pipeline,” National Journal reports.  

“The committee will hear Thursday from pipeline opponents and boosters at a hearing on the project and the State Department’s ongoing review to determine whether approving it would be in the ‘national interest.'”  

“It arrives more than a year after Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat who opposes the pipeline, first said he planned to put the project under the committee’s microscope at some point.”
