Update on TransCanada Keystone XL Pipeline Senate Vote

The bill to pass the construction of the TransCanada Keystone XL Pipeline was not passed. Just shy of the 60 votes needed by Senate to pass, the bill failed with a 59-41 vote.

Although it is currently on hold, next year when Republicans take over the Senate, they may make this construction a larger priority. It looks like some of our current elected officials don’t appreciate the need for lower home heating oil and diesel fuel prices and a more secure supply.

We will have to wait and see what next year brings on this issue.
