Senate Passes Keystone Bill

WASHINGTON, DC – By a margin of 62-36, with nine Democrats breaking rank to join Republicans in achieving a 60+ filibuster-proof supermajority, the United States Senate passed a bill approving the Keystone pipeline.  The House of Representatives now must decide whether it will simply approve the Senate bill or modify it in its own chamber.

Either way, President Obama has vowed to veto the controversial measure, which is bound to create more political battles between the Democratic president and the Republican Congress.

Should Obama veto the measure, Congress would need a 2/3 majority to override it and enact it into law anyway. Currently, it does not have the necessary number of votes to do so.
