Senate Rejects Keystone Pipeline Restrictions Amendment

The Senate, by a vote of 33-65, rejected Senate Amendment 1817, which provides for the implementation of the Keystone XL Pipeline from Canada, providing that the oil transported is not subsequently exported, and that all materials in the construction are made in the US. This was seen as a ploy by unions to force union labor in the construction, therefore all 33 votes for the amendment were by Democrats beholden to union interests.
