Keeping Keystone alive

A United States House of Representatives committee passed a bill on Feb. 7 as Republicans try to speed up approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, according to Reuters. The Keystone bill would hand decision-making on the pipeline to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The Keystone bill will be sent to the full House. The House Energy and Commerce Committee made the decision in a 33-20 vote. It is expected that the bill will become part of another, the highway and infrastructure funding bill.
