The U-S House will again try to force a decision on the Keystone X-L pipeline.
The payroll tax extension passed in December contained a section that would have required a decision on the pipeline by later this month.
President Obama in response, decided to deny a federal permit. Nebraska Congressman Adrian Smith, a Republican, says there are enough reports that have been done about the proposed route.
The proposed 17-hundred mile, six-billion-dollar pipeline would transport Canadian tar sands oil across Nebraska and several other states to refineries along the Texas Gulf Coast.
The pipeline would cross much of Smith's Third Congressional District and he says support will grow as the price of gas goes up.
Smith says he still supports building the pipeline, especially after last year's special legislative session on the subject.
