Hoeven Statement on Keystone XL Approval Vote

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today issued the following statement after the U.S. Senate fell short of passing his Keystone XL approval bill:

“Today, we did not gain the 60 votes necessary in the Senate to pass my bill to approve the Keystone XL pipeline.

“At that time, I will reintroduce the bill, possibly as part of a broader energy package or appropriations bill that the president will not want to veto.
