There are dueling bills in Congress that would clear the way for construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline in the United States.
The House already has passed a bill, sponsored by Republican Bill Cassidy, who’s a candidate for Senate in Louisiana.
The Senate has its own pro-KXL bill, sponsored by Democrat Mary Landrieu, the other candidate for Senate in Louisiana. They’ll square off in a runoff election Dec. 6.
Landrieu has 59 supporters for her bill, but she needs 60 to prevent it from being stalled by a filibuster threat.
A vote is scheduled for Tuesday.
Bloomberg has more on the horse-trading going on over the Senate bill.
