March 8 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Senate rejected an amendment that would have approved construction of TransCanada Corp.’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.
