Pipeline Approval Unlikely

A Nebraska Congressman pushing for approval of Keystone XL says recent statements by the President lead him to believe he will reject the oil pipeline. Congressman Lee Terry says President Obama seems to be changing his administration’s energy policy. . .

Terry says Obama has recently criticized coal, oil from tar sands…and now is downplaying the job-generating potential of the Keystone XL pipeline. Terry says it appears the president doesn’t want to alienate environmental voters. . .
