McConnell pushes for votes on Keystone pipeline, EPA rule

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) insisted Tuesday that a vote on approving the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline be part of an agreement that would allow sweeping transportation funding legislation to advance.


The transportation bill stalled in a procedural vote early Tuesday afternoon as negotiations on which amendments will be considered continue, and McConnell said an agreement is “very close.”

McConnell wants a vote on a GOP leadership-backed plan – offered by Sens. John Hoeven (R-N.D.), Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) and David Vitter (R-La.) – that would approve construction of the proposed Alberta-to-Texas pipeline.
