Backers of the Keystone XL Pipeline are hoping this will be the week the plan gets a big boost from the United States Senate.
A vote on the pipeline could be days away--if the project is added to a bill on energy efficiency--which is due to hit the Senate floor. The Senate's Number Two Republican said it's about time to move forward.
"It's been the most scrutinized and investigated and reviewed project in our nation's history" said Senator John Cornyn, who added moving the project forward depends on whether or not Majority Leader Harry Reid will allow it to be attached to the bill--despite broad bi-partisan support for the plan.
"This makes no sense--other than the fact our Democratic friends seem to be cpative to radical environmentalists" Cornyn said.
