WSJ: Keystone pipeline decision on collision course with midterm elections

|By:, SA News Editor

The Obama administration is set to complete a critical phase of its Keystone XL (TRP) pipeline review next month, WSJ reports, setting the stage for Pres. Obama to make a decision on approving the controversial project in the thick of the midterm campaign season.

The State Department aims to release a report on the environmental impact of the proposed pipeline extension next month, sources tell WSJ, a move that could put Obama on track to make a decision by May or June.

Administration officials have long been vague about the timing of the State Department review.
