Hoeven will re-introduce legislation to force approval of Keystone pipeline

BISMARCK, N.D. _ North Dakota’s two U.S. senators are renewing their call to President Barack Obama to approve the Keystone XL pipeline project now that Nebraska has approved a new route.

Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., said he plans to reintroduce legislation enabling Congress to approve the pipeline if the president doesn’t. The legislation narrowly failed last year.
