Heitkamp calls for vote on Keystone XL Pipeline bill

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp spoke on the Senate floor Wednesday afternoon and called on the Senate to vote on and pass strong, bipartisan legislation to approve the Keystone XL pipeline.
“The clearest message from the recent election is that Congress needs to stop fighting and get its work done,” said Heitkamp. “We can do that by quickly taking a bold step forward and passing non-partisan legislation now to approve the Keystone XL pipeline – not waiting two, three, or four months. For some time, Senator Landrieu and I have been working together to build strong Democratic support for this project and with that support, we’ll be able to finally pass the Keystone XL pipeline and make this project happen. Let’s restore Americans’ trust in the Senate and show that we can work together to pass a bill that supports our economy and North American energy independence.”
