On April 24, the House Natural Resources Committee became the second committee to approve H.R. 3, the Northern Route Approval Act, which would waive both the presidential permit and the State Department supplemental environmental review for the Keystone XL pipeline. The committee voted 24-17 in favor of the bill. The bill will be sent to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee for consideration. Republican leaders have said they hope the House will vote on the bill before Memorial Day.
