From Reuters:

Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives will try to force quick approval of the Canada-to-Texas Keystone XL oil pipeline using a highway funding bill, but the plan's author said on Monday there may be more than one avenue for advancing the project.

A House panel is set to vote on today on a plan that would speed approval for the Keystone XL pipeline project into the highway bill.

Republicans also could try to include the project in payroll tax cut legislation, said Lee Terry, a Republican from Nebraska.

"We'll keep swinging," Terry told reporters.

"Maybe we'll use both."

Terry's plan is slated for a vote by the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Tuesday. It would transfer authority for permitting the 1,700-mile (2,720-km) project to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and direct the commission to approve the project within 30 days.
