North American-Made Energy Security Act passes House

H.R. 1938, the North American-Made Energy Security Act passed the House by a strong 279-147. The bill directs the President to make a determination on proceeding with the Keystone XL Oil Pipeline to be built between Alberta, Canada and the United States no later than Nov. 1st, 2011. The President’s permission is required in this case because it is an international matter.

Three Republicans, Bass (NH-2), Fortenberry (NE-1), and Hayworth (NY-19) voted against the measure, while 47 Democrats joined the majority for its passage. The measure remains on the Senate Calendar.
