OVERNIGHT ENERGY: Keystone bill headed to swift demise
SIGNED, SEALED, TO BE DELIVERED: The House voted mostly along party lines Wednesday to build the Keystone XL pipeline, sending the bill to President Obama for a certain veto.
Twenty-nine Democrats joined all but one Republican in passing the Senate’s Keystone bill for a 270-152 tally, challenging Obama to make the most high-profile veto of his time in office.
The House had passed the bill last month, but Wednesday’s vote approved the Senate’s version, which added some minor amendments.
After the Senate signs the bill passed on Wednesday, Keystone will be shipped off to 1600 Penn. Ave. to meet its demise.
