After six hours of debate Tuesday, the U.S. Senate voted 59 to 41 for authorizing what Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer called the "Keystone Extra-Lethal" pipeline and Sen Ed Markey called the "Keystone Export Line." That was one vote short of the 60-vote threshold needed to approve the legislation pushed by Louisiana Democrat Mary Landrieu and North Dakota Republican John Hoeven, senators from two states with major oil industries.
