Senators Push For Keystone Pipeline

Posted: Updated:

Eleven Senate Democrats, including North Dakota's Heidi Heitkamp, are urging President Obama to approve the Keystone XL pipeline by the end of May.

The senators say approval of the pipeline is needed to ensure that TransCanada does not miss another construction season.

"We're trying to make sure that the president knows that this isn't just one group of people pushing the keystone pipeline, it is all of us working together to make sure this happens," says Heitkamp.

The senators also pushed for Secretary of State John Kerry to report on the national interest of the Keystone Project in a timely manner after the comment period on the project runs out.
