Keystone XL Pipeline Progress

February 14, 2012, 5:53 PM by Kelly Bartnick

Keystone XL Pipeline Progress
The Keystone XL Pipeline is down but it's definitely not out.

A backdoor amendment by GOP lawmakers in Washington, D.C. could put the project denied by President Barack Obama back in motion.

The mammoth Keystone XL pipeline would stretch from Canadian oil refineries all the way to Texas. Debate over the construction plan has made it all the way to Washington, D.C. And it doesn't seem to stop.

The Obama administration halted permits for the $7 billion project last month because environmental studies were not complete. But Senate Republicans have added the pipeline as an amendment to their highway funding bill. That is set to be debated on the floor yet this week. Similar legislation is making its way through the House.

Supporters of the pipeline have said attaching it as a provision could end up killing the bill all together.

Republicans in favor of the pipeline say it will create thousands of construction jobs. People opposed say the pipeline poses an environmental threat and long-term job creation numbers would be small.

When the president denied TransCanda's permit application, he said the company could apply again with an alternate route. That is something it plans to do. The company had put the permitting process on the fast-track and hoped to have it serviced in late 2014. But they have since moved that back to 2015.

TransCanada is working with officials in Nebraska who have opposed the plan because the pipeline runs through the Sandhills region, which is deemed environmentally sensitive.
