Senate tries, fails to override Presidential veto of Keystone XL Pipeline bill

Republicans in the the U.S. senate failed to gather enough votes Wednesday to override President Obama's veto of a bill to build the Keystone XL oil pipeline. The final tally was 62-37.


The $8 billion pipeline would transport oil from Canada to refineries on the Gulf Coast.


In his veto, President Obama said the bill circumvented the process for approving pipelines that cross international borders.
