Obama Kicking the Keystone XL pipeline down the Road

The Obama administration has extended a key review period for the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, Fox News has learned, potentially pushing off a decision until after the midterm elections.

The administration is extending a 90-day review period for federal agencies assessing an environmental study from the State Department.

One congressional source said the administration claims it is extending the process in order to see how a lawsuit in Nebraska would affect the pipeline route.

The administration, despite appeals from Democrats and Republicans to wrap up the protracted process, is not giving a final deadline.


Kicking the can

What has become a normal tactic of the Obama Administration has been used here as well.  This extension will push a final decision on the Keystone XL Pipeline past the 2014 election cycle.  Kicking the can (or in this case) the pipe down the road.
