FILE - In this June 10, 2013 file photo, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., speaks to reporters at the Capitol in Washington. The explosive derailment of a tanker car near Casselton, N.D., on Dec. 30, 2013, has North Dakota’s senators pushing harder than ever for expanded oil pipelines. Both Heitkamp and Republican Sen. John Hoeven say they’ve stressed to federal officials in recent days that the North Dakota accident and other recent derailments show, at least in part, the need for more pipelines. (AP Photo/J.
