On Tuesday, the White House stated that President Obama would veto legislation approving construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

“If this bill passes this Congress the president won’t sign it,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said.

Late last year Congress nearly passed a bill approving the Keystone XL pipeline, which would bring oil from the heavily polluting tar sands down to the Gulf Coast. Republicans, now in control of both chambers, have made passing such legislation a priority starting on Tuesday as Congress convened its new session.
