Keystone XL decision to be delayed

Keystone XL pipeline decisoin delayedThe Obama administration on Friday extended the review period on the Keystone XL pipeline, perhaps pushing back a final decision on the disputed project until after the Nov. 4 congressional elections.

The State Department announced that it is adding 90 days to an environmental review period, in part to assess how a pending lawsuit in Nebraska might affect the pipeline route.

"The Permit process will conclude once factors that have a significant impact on determining the national interest of the proposed project have been evaluated and appropriately reflected in the decision documents," the State Department said, not providing a specific deadline. "The Department will give the agencies sufficient time to submit their views."

Republicans who support the pipeline denounced the delay, and focused the blame on President Obama.
