Senate rejects drilling amendment, extenders language in reauthorization marathon

The Senate today rejected an attempt to expand offshore drilling and approve the Keystone XL pipeline as it worked through a tall stack of amendments to the $109 billion transportation reauthorization bill. By 4:30 this afternoon, senators had voted on 12 amendments, rejecting one that would have extended some energy tax incentives and another that would have offered incentives for natural gas vehicles. The chamber has 10 amendments to go before it can vote for final passage of the two-year surface transportation bill.
