Remember in November.
The Senate rejected controversial Republican measures Thursday that would approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline, expand offshore drilling into new waters and delay environmental regulations for industrial and commercial boilers.
On party-line votes, the Senate turned down the measures, which came in the form of amendments to a bill that would reauthorize surface-transportation programs for two fiscal years. The rejection of the amendments, though expected, served to starve Republicans of energy-policy victories, especially on a pipeline they have used as an election-year rallying cry.
