“Montanans expect their lawmakers to do what they say, and say what they do. To me, a vote against the Keystone is a vote against Montana. I’m a proud co-sponsor of the House bill to build the Keystone XL Pipeline because it is proven to be safe and in the best interest of Montana. I will always put Montana before raising money from special interests in Washington, D.C.”
Politico reported: The Senate has passed legislation to approve the Keystone XL pipeline with a 62-36 vote.
“Nine Democrats joined every Republican in supporting the bill that would yank the decision on the $8 billion pipeline from the president, who plans to veto the measure.
“First, House Republican leaders must decide whether to vote on the Senate bill or begin talks to merge it with their version of the bill that was passed earlier this month.”
