Keystone XL pipeline decision delayed

The Obama administration has delayed making a decision on the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada to the United States.

On Thursday, Nov. 10, the State Department explained that it wants to study an alternative route through Nebraska. According to a Friday New York Times story, the postponement will push any action well past the 2012 election and into 2013.
