Nov. 14 (Bloomberg) — The House of Representatives passed a bill to approve building the Keystone XL pipeline in defiance of President Barack Obama, who today challenged supporters’ arguments that the pipeline will help the U.S. economy.
The Republican-led House passed the measure 252-161, with 31 Democrats in support. The bill will be considered in the Democratic-led Senate Nov. 18, where an aide who spoke on condition of anonymity said supporters have 59 of 60 votes needed to pass it.
Obama could still veto a bill if it passes the Senate.
