Tester statement on Keystone XL vote

(U.S. Senate) - Senator Jon Tester today released the following statement after the Senate failed to move forward with legislation approving the Keystone XL Pipeline:

"I'm disappointed the Senate today failed to pass bipartisan legislation that creates jobs and increases energy security. We need to seize every common-sense opportunity to move this country forward. I remain optimistic that - despite today's vote - Congress will find ways to work together to strengthen our nation."

59 Senators voted to approve the pipeline. Sixty Senators were needed to pass the legislation.

Tester is a supporter of building the Keystone XL Pipeline as long as it is built to the highest safety standards and respect for private property rights. He authored the bill's provision to protect private property rights.
