Senators call on Obama for pipeline decision

Keywords: Tags  Keystone XL, pipeline, Barack Obama, Thorsten Schier

NEW YORK — Eleven Senate Democrats have called on President Obama to make his final decision on TransCanada Corp.’s Keystone XL pipeline by May 31.

The senators are also asking for Secretary of State John Kerry to make his national interest determination no later than 15 days after the expiration of a 90-day comment period by national agencies.

In a letter to Obama, the senators called the approval process "exhaustive" and said that the project "cannot miss another construction season, given the long cold winter this year along the Keystone XL route and the time required for ground thaw," which could mean "a very short season."
