U.S. Senate Passes Amendment in Support of Keystone XL Project

Senators John Hoeven (R-ND) and Max Baucus (D-MT) today offered an amendment that passed putting the U.S. Senate on record in support of the Keystone XL pipeline. The measure, which is attached to the Senate budget bill, was cosponsored by Sens. John Cornyn (R-TX), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), John Barrasso (R-WY), Mark Begich (R-AK), Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Joe Manchin (D-WV). The measure passed by a vote of 62-37.

The Hoeven-Baucus measure formally recognized the position that Keystone XL, a major energy infrastructure project, will boost the nation’s economic growth and contribute revenues to the United States Treasury. Just prior to passage of the Hoeven-Baucus Amendment, a second amendment that attempted to put delays and restrictions on the project was defeated by a vote of 33-66.
