Last Week

The House and Senate returned to Washington and spent much of the week organizing for the upcoming 2015 session. Both bodies to the surprise of many made progress on the Keystone XL pipeline. The House immediately passed legislation approving the project by a vote of 252 - 161, and sent the bill over to the Senate, which will take up the legislation early this week. It may be worth noting that the progress of this issue can be tied to the runoff election in Louisiana, as both lead proponents of the legislation will be squaring off on December 6. Opponents of the legislation and pipeline are touting the President’s ability to approve the project today and using this as a likely reason why he may end up vetoing the legislation, as the stroke of his pen could already accomplish what the legislation is seeking to do.
