WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner said on Wednesday Republicans in Congress will continue to fight for the Keystone XL crude oil pipeline that the Obama administration rejected.

"All options are on the table," for fighting for the Canada to Texas oil sands pipeline, Boehner told reporters. "This is not the end of the fight." Republicans in the Senate have said they could legislate an approval of the pipeline that could get around any rejection by President Barack Obama.
