Keystone pipeline measure fails in Senate

Posted By on Thu, Mar 8, 2012 at 3:28 PM

An amendment in the U.S. Senate to fast-track the Keystone pipeline failed today. Needing 60 votes, it got 56. Sen. Mark Pryor was among the Democrats who voted with Republicans for the pipeline.

I don't know if there's been a vote yet on Democrat Ron Wyden's proposal to require that all fuels refined from the pipeline when it is built — a southern leg is going forward already and a new route is being planned for a northern leg — be used domestically and not be exported. Republicans oppose this, which tells you a little something about the argument that this pipeline is all about the U.S. fuel supply.
