House GOP press for Keystone XL approval by Nov. 1

by

House Republicans have drafted legislation that would require the Obama administration to approve by Nov. 1 TransCanada’s proposed Keystone XL pipeline from the oil sands in Alberta to the Gulf Coast.

On Monday, members of House Energy and Commerce committee will hold a hearing to make the case for “North American made energy security”.

It’s interesting that the notion of  “North American energy security” (as opposed to the oft-cited “American energy security”) is gaining political traction in Washington, DC.
