Aide: Democrats Offer Vote to Approve Keystone XL Pipeline — With a Catch

Senate Democrats are offering Republicans a vote on approving the Keystone XL pipeline, but are demanding an energy efficiency bill pass in return.

Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., remained confident Monday that the Senate would vote on approving the Keystone XL pipeline regardless of the outcome of the energy bill, but a senior Democratic aide threw cold water on that idea.

“We are ready to give them a vote if they give us Shaheen-Portman,” a senior Senate Democratic aide said, referring to the energy efficiency legislation’s authors, Sens. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., and Rob Portman, R-Ohio.

The aide added that the deal would require enough Republican support to pass the energy efficiency bill.

“They need a way to figure out how to take yes for an answer,” the aide continued.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., compared the negotiation to a shell game.

“That’s how I feel about this Shaheen-Portman,” Reid said in a brief interview with reporters. “It keeps changing. Every night there is something new… That’s where we are.”

Reid said he believes that there are enough votes to begin debate, but that it’s unclear if Republicans will vote to end debate on the measure.

“I think we can get cloture on moving to it, but whether we can get off of it I don’t know,” Reid said.

The chamber is scheduled to vote to limit debate on proceeding to the bill on Tuesday. Hoeven said he too expects Republicans to go along with that vote to move the process along.

“I think you’ll see that we’ll vote to proceed to the bill,” he said.

Hoeven told reporters Monday that his conversations last week with Reid indicated that the chamber would move to a Keystone bill after the efficiency bill, without preconditions.

“He said that we would go to energy efficiency, and then we’ll go to Keystone,” Hoeven said.

Reid last week offered Republicans a vote on a separate bill to approve the Keystone XL pipeline the week following consideration of the efficiency legislation. But Republicans are pushing for four amendments to the bill, one of which would include language deeming the controversial pipeline approved.

Democrats argue that seeking the four amendments is the latest effort of the GOP to move the goalposts in the negotiations.

“First they wanted non-binding language, then binding language, and now it’s Keystone plus their favorite energy amendments,” the aide continued.

While Hoeven left the open the possibility that Keystone could get a vote even if the efficiency bill fails, the aide was skeptical, stressing the deal requires passage of the legislation in exchange for a vote on the pipeline.

“We’d need a path to passage,” the aide said.

The other amendments Republicans want considered include a Hoeven bill to prevent the EPA from requiring carbon capture and sequestration technology to capture greenhouse gas emissions from power plants unless certain benchmarks are met. In addition, GOP leaders want votes on a measure by Wyoming Republican John Barrasso to require the Energy Department to approve liquefied natural gas exports to all World Trade Organization countries and on a Roy Blunt, R-Mo., proposal to prevent a carbon tax.

Earlier Monday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney declined to say whether the president would veto a bill approving Keystone, although there is an assumption that he would. Keystone does not yet have 67 votes in the Senate to override a veto.

White House adviser John Podesta, who has recused himself from Keystone, pointed to Shaheen-Portman earlier Monday as an example of something Congress might be able accomplish this year on climate change. But, he noted, it has to get past a filibuster hurdle first.

As for Congress limiting on the president’s authority to impose carbon regulations? Podesta said the odds of that happening were “zero.”

    Why can’t everyone just agree to vote on the goddam pipeline, without all the extras?

      Because they all deem the extras as being important, and neither side trusts the other to allow votes on their side’s extras.

    And if President Obama wants to have a real legacy, he should focus on climate change and the environment – NOT IMMIGRATION!! Immigration makes climate change worse by increasing the population. Plus it’s bad for American workers.

    “Our earliest responses to fear are two fold,” notes Shechtman. “First, we go quiet and hope no one notices us. Second, we lash out and try to hurt others. Both are in the service of trying to stay safe. Of course and this is the irony neither response is conducive to the focus, creativity, and plain old hard work it’s going to take to pull a company through the recession.”Whoever orders books on the Internet, withdraws money from a cash machine or uses a navigation system to arrive at a destination is (usually without realizing it) using companies’ very large databases. These are accessed and managed by computer programs which depending on the type of application or search request work quite differently. Saarbrucken computer scientists have recently developed a concept for a database system that automatically adapts to different requirements and thus combines features of previously different systems.

    Cutting through the crap and misconception ever so swiftly, it deems and re names cannabis sativa “Marihuana” as a term of pure disrespect, and then outlaws all but her stalks, stems and roots, which basically means she can no longer legally grow much less strive for the maturity cycle given her she cannot grow without her leaves, and her point to grow is to produce beautifully exquisite flowers, and to procreate via her seed via the pollination of her hairs. Sativa’s siblings Indica Rudrailis were excluded and had no law ever written nor pertaining to them as did they to sativa right here bless their hearts, but they too suffered too as if there were because of the family connection, wrongful, detrimental and illegal as it was and continues to be and gotten away with.

    To do so, the Senate will continue to focus on providing our State with accountability and leadership in education. We will do that by working together with educational leaders and stakeholders to increase the time our children spend with highly qualified teachers. And we will do what is necessary to make sure that every student graduates ready to succeed in a trade or college, a career, and citizenship. In addition, the Senate sees the University of Hawaii System as a critical component in our P 20 educational effort and will continue to direct resources toward strategic objectives with the goal of building upon the individual strengths of each of our ten campuses statewide.If Shaffir has the guts to joke about the Fear Factor host to his face, the Punch Line should be no problem. and is sticking around through Jan.

    The current City Council members and interim City Manager have been in their positions for too long and/or haven got the best interest of the City of Concord in mind. They are collecting hefty salaries and are not showing the results that the city needs in these rocky times. Last week the interim city manager wanted to give top executives a raise including herself without knowing how much $$$$$ the city has coming available. You don go out and buy a house because you THINK you are getting a raise. By no means is this a time to give any employee a raise when you are furloughing employees on a regular basis. These folks have Financial obligations too. You have union contracts that she knew would create waves, but she is like a bull in a china shop. Why is the City Council not looking for a good City Manager from the outside and hiring such a person. The last City Manager was no Ed James by far. Voters need to look carefully at both council seats that will be on the ballot in November and make sure that they know everything about the folks running for office, whether it an incumbent or a new face. Find out what their agenda is and their reason for wanting the position. It could be for their gain or it might be to help the city. Your vote effects the future of your city.The dash and instrument panel has been well thought out.

    UPDATE: Power is finally turning back on for hundreds of people in parts of Northern Michigan, who have been without electricity since last week Winter Storm.Power companies worked through the Christmas Holiday and even brought in extra crews to get everyone connected, but down trees have made accessing and repairing lines extremely difficult.In their latest press release, Presque Isle Electric and Gas said that all but 140 customers had their electricity back, as of this afternoon.Approximately 21,612 services have been restored thus far, but crews are down to individual outages that involve lengthy repairs, including tree removals, line repairs, and replacement of broken poles.Most of those who are still without power are located in Montmerency County, around Lewiston and Atlanta.The company says many will be back on tonight, but for a few individual, isolated services, restoration will likely take until Friday.Presque Isle Electric Gas Co op reminds everyone to stay away from downed power lines and says members who lose power should contact them immediately at 1 800 423 6634.The company provides electric and natural gas service to approximately 40,000 member owners in a nine county area, in Northeast Michigan, headquartered in Onaway.One local restaurant showed its appreciation for all their hard work by opening on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, so utility workers would have a place to eat.The owner of the Iron Kettle Restaurant in Lewiston says, it was the least they could do to show workers how much they cared.9 and 10 Kyle Mitchell and photojournalist Jacob Johnson have more on how people have been getting by without power for more than five days.While that improved sales, they didn’t skyrocket.Funeral held for former Gov.

    I’m not sure exactly why but this website is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
