WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The House of Representatives next week will take up the Senate's bill on the long-pending Keystone XL pipeline "and send it to the presidents desk," House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy said on Tuesday.

The Senate passed its legislation on Thursday. Obama is expected to veto the bill.
