Landrieu of Louisiana, who faces a runoff election in December to retain her seat, said on the Senate floor she was “confident” she has the votes to pass a bill on TransCanada’s $8 billion project. “I believe it is time to act,” said Landrieu, chair of the Senate Energy Committee. “It’s a deliverable on promises that we have all made.” (Reporting by Ros Krasny; Editing by Sandra Maler)
