The US Capitol dome is seen in Washington, DC, on January 5, 2015The US House of Representatives will vote Friday on a bill authorizing construction of the Canada-to-US Keystone XL oil pipeline, currently blocked by Democrats but a priority in the new Republican Congress. The House passed similar legislation in November but it fell one vote short in the Democratic-controlled Senate. The new leadership in the Senate, which flips to a Republican majority Tuesday following November elections, has said it has enough votes to pass the measure. House Republican Kevin Cramer said he will introduce the new bill Tuesday, the day lawmakers return to Washington to begin the new congressional session.
