Keystone XL Pipeline Fails Senate Vote (Conversation With Senator Tester)
The U.S. Senate voted against the House to defeat the Keystone Pipeline Tuesday afternoon with 59 "yes" votes and 41 "no" votes.
As heard on KMMS AM earlier this morning, Senator Jon Tester voted for the pipeline. Senator John Walsh also voted for the pipeline.
ISIL, Immigration and Public Lands, are among the other topics Tester discussed during the recent interview with KMMS AM. Listen to the conversation below:
Tester released the following statement after the Senate failed to move forward with legislation approving the Keystone XL Pipeline:
“I’m disappointed the Senate today failed to pass bipartisan legislation that creates jobs and increases energy security. We need to seize every common-sense opportunity to move this country forward. I remain optimistic that – despite today’s vote – Congress will find ways to work together to strengthen our nation.”
