Ryan: Link Keystone Pipeline With Debt-Ceiling Negotiations

“Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis) suggested tying approval of the Keystone pipeline to raising the debt ceiling Monday night,” reports The Hill.

Ryan: “I, for one, think we need to do more in the energy sector. I believe we need to approve Keystone pipeline.”

“Ryan suggested the debt ceiling could be a chance to reopen the negotiations: “Maybe we can go back at some of those things that we were looking for.”

“A demand to include Keystone pipeline approval in the debt-ceiling deal could add another headache on the issue for the Obama administration, which has already faced protests against its approval by environmental groups. The State Department is currently completing a final study of the pipeline’s environmental impact.”
