Sen. John Barrasso: Harry Reid won’t allow vote on Keystone pipeline bill
Question of the Day
Sen. John Barrasso said Monday that he expects a Senate energy committee will easily approve a bill this week to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will never let the measure get a vote in the Senate.
The Senate and Natural Resources Committee is expected to approve a bill, co-sponsored by Sen. Mary Landrieu, Louisiana Democrat and Sen. John Hoeven, North Dakota Republican, this week that would green-light the project.
Mrs. Landrieu is facing a tough re-election battle in Louisiana. Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy and retired Air Force Col. Rob Maness, who has the support from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, are also running for the seat.
“I think that is why Mary Landrieu is bringing this forward as a show vote in the energy committee this week,” he said. “But Harry Reid could have taken this to the Senate floor weeks ago. He has chosen not to.”
