OMAHA (DTN) -- Though a decision on the proposed Keystone XL pipeline that would traverse farm and ranch lands in the Nebraska Sandhills is unlikely to come from the Obama administration ahead of the November elections, a U.S. Senate committee is set to vote on legislation this week that would approve the project which already has been given the green light by the U.S. State Department.

The legislation introduced by Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., and Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., will be up for a vote in the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources Wednesday.
