The never-ending story continues. Once again, the U.S. government has put off making a decision on the Keystone XL pipeline.
TransCanada first proposed the plan to the U.S. State Department in 2010, anticipating fairly quick approval. Instead, the project has become a political football with President Obama repeatedly refusing to make a decision for fear of alienating the environmentalist supporters of the Democratic Party. The latest delay likely means no decision from Washington until after the November mid-term elections, if then.
