House Passes Keystone Bill, Sending It To Obama For Veto

WASHINGTON -- The House of Representatives passed the Senate version of legislation approving construction of the Keystone XL pipeline on Wednesday, sending the bill to President Barack Obama's desk for an anticipated veto.

The bill passed by a vote of 270-152.

This marks the 11th time the House has voted on a bill to force approval of Keystone. The bill passed Wednesday is the version that the Senate approved on Jan. 29. It includes a few amendments but is substantially similar to the previous House measure.
