Vote NO on Proposed Hoeven Amendment Endorsing Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline
An amendment introduced last night by Senator Hoeven (Amendment 494), while non-binding, could support the approval and construction of the dirty and dangerous Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. It does not approve the pipeline, nor does it direct the president to approve it. It is instead an attempt to rattle the cage and call for a vote count on behalf of Big Oil. Senators should stand with the American people, not Big Oil, and vote against this amendment.
