A key Republican lawmaker is predicting swift action on a Keystone XL pipeline bill in a Republican-controlled Senate.
Should the GOP pick up the six seats needed to secure the majority in the upper chamber, Nebraska GOP Rep. Lee Terry (R-Neb.) said that "one of the first things I think would happen is Keystone pipeline going to the Senate floor."
Some expect President Obama to make a final call on Keystone in the next couple of months. Others believe that will happen after the mid-term elections.
Terry's legislation on Keystone easily passed the House and 62 senators backed a non-binding budget measure that would give the controversial project the green light.
