Reuters reports that the Republican Party will quickly pass a bill approving the completion of the Keystone Pipeline, a project that has been delayed for six years due to political partisanship. Republican Sen. John Hoeven (R-N.D.) said he has a bill with 56 sponsors and that collecting the 60 votes needed to pass the law will not be difficult. A vote would force U.S. President Barack Obama to make a decision over the highly supported energy project. Shares of TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP), the pipeline's operator, rose by 3.25% yesterday.
