Obama prepared to reject controversial Keystone XL Pipeline


President Barack Obama is planning to reject a permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline, according to news reports, but the company behind the controversial project is seeking to delay a decision.

Obama has said he will take action before he leaves office in January 2017. Although a timeline has never been provided, news reports claimed the White House is ready to reject it.

That may be why TransCanada, a Canadian firm, is asking the Department of State to suspend review of its cross-border permit application. The company said it needs more time to secure approval of Nebraska portion of the route.
