Reed votes yes in House for Keystone XL Pipeline, urges Senate passage...
 
Local Congressman Tom Reed is calling on members of the Senate to take a vote on the Keystone XL Pipeline that will bring Canadian crude oil through the U-S.  Reed was among the large, bi-partisan majority in the House that voted in favor of building the pipeline late last week.  The Corning Republican says it's the "right policy" to secure America's energy security.  Reed says the pipeline will also creat thousands of new jobs.  However... opponents say the number of new jobs... estimated at just over 40,000... are overstated.  They also say the United States won't benefit from the gasoline and oil that's ultimately produced.  Reed says he disgrees.  There's also word today that there aren't enough votes in the Senate to bring the measure to the Senate floor, and pass it.  He says Louisiana Democrat, Mary Landreux, has said she'll bring it to the floor.  Reed says the Keystone Pipeline has been discussed for the past five years... and, he feels opponents are just being political in opposing it's construction.
