Boehner Calls on Obama 'to do the Right Thing' and Approve Keystone

Friday, 13 Feb 2015 06:20 PM

Congress' Republican leadership has made it official, formally enrolling legislation to build the Keystone XL pipeline and urging President Barack Obama to sign it.

In a ceremony on Friday, Speaker John Boehner put his signature on the bill and called on Obama to "do the right thing" and add his name.

While the next stop for the measure is the White House, where Obama has threatened to veto it, Republicans will delay sending it over until after their weeklong recess. That's because they want to be in town when Obama vetoes it.

First proposed in 2008, the pipeline if approved would connect Canada's tar sands to Gulf Coast refineries.

The White House has said repeatedly it will wait to make its decision until after a State Department review.
