The Senate began voting on 30 amendments to the transportation bill and rejected one to fast-track the Keystone XL pipeline.

The U.S. Senate rejected an amendment that would have approved construction of TransCanada Corp. (TRP)’s Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast.

The amendment failed 56-42 today, with 60 votes needed for approval. The amendment was proposed by Republican Senator John Hoeven of North Dakota to be part of a transportation spending measure. The Senate may take a vote on the highway bill early next week.
