Congress Set to Approve Keystone XL

The US House of Representatives voted to approve the Keystone XL pipeline on Friday and the US Senate is expected to vote to approve the long-delayed project tomorrow.

President Obama has said his decision on Keystone depends on the pipeline’s net effects on carbon emissions: “The net effects of the pipeline’s impact on our climate will be absolutely critical to determining whether this project is allowed to go forward.”

The LA Times reports White House spokesman Josh Earnest last week said Obama is likely to veto the pipeline: “In evaluating those earlier proposals, we have indicated that the president’s senior advisors at the White House would recommend that he veto legislation like that.”
