The U.S. Senate today failed to adopt an amendment to approve construction of TransCanada’s dirty Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

The amendment as proposed by Senator John Hoeven (R-ND) would have fast-tracked construction of the pipeline after President Obama rejected the proposed pipeline in January.

The amendment would have required 60 votes to pass, but received only 56 votes in favor.
