Rep. Upton asks Clinton to testify on Keystone rejection

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican Congressman Fred Upton said on Wednesday he has asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to testify next week before a House committee on the decision to reject the Keystone XL pipeline.

The State Department rejected a permit for TransCanada Corp's Canada to Texas Keystone pipeline on Wednesday, saying at this time the pipeline is not in the national interest.
