Do You Care About Building the Keystone XL Pipeline?

Then here is whom to vote for on November 4!

What is it?

  • The Keystone XL pipeline brings oil from Canada to oil refineries in the U.S. The controversy is that it passes over environmentally-sensitive lands, particularly some aquifers where an oil spill would be disastrous.

  • The Keystone pipeline has become the focus of the debate whether domestic oil is more important than environmental protection. Keystone advocates typically want to drill for oil and gas domestically as much as possible, rather than importing oil from unfriendly countries. Recent legislation on other oil & gas drilling includes:

  • The Roadmap for America's Energy Future would drill for oil on the Outer Continental Shelf (opponents cite the risk of another BP-New Orleans-style offshore oil spill).

  • The No Surface Occupancy Western Arctic Coastal Plain Domestic Energy Security Act would drill for oil in Alaska's ANWR area (opponents cite the risk of another Exxon Valdez-style oil spill).

How does it get passed?

It takes 218 Congresspersons to pass Keystone XL bills in the House of Representatives. It takes 60 Senators in the Senate (a super-majority is needed on this issue, to avoid filibusters).

What's happened so far?

The last major House bill, (the Northern Route Approval Act), passed the House with 241 votes (the "Northern Route" changes the Keystone pipeline's route to avoid the most environmentally-sensitive area). Rejecting the next bill would only need 34 more House votes.

The last major Senate amendment, approving the Keystone XL pipeline failed with 56 votes in the Senate (it required 60 votes to pass). Passing the next Keystone bill would only need 4 more Senate votes to overcome the expected filibuster on the next bill.

What will the candidates running in my area on November 4 do?

You'll see below the names of everyone running, for whom we can predict their vote on this issue. They are organized alphabetically by State in one of the two lists below!

The PRO list are those running in 2014 who have supported building the Keystone XL pipeline.

The CON list are those running in 2014 who have opposed building the Keystone XL pipeline.

An interpretation key appears at the bottom.

Get your friends and family and friends on Facebook and Twitter and elsewhere to help elect 218 and 60 and Keystone XL bills will pass!

    How to interpret this page

  • The list above includes candidates for Senate and House seats in 2014.
  • All of the above ratings are based on multiple sources of information.
  • The sources of information include legislative votes; bill sponsorships; group ratings; campaign websites; campaign debates; and biographical books.
  • Each information source is rated as supporting the topic, or opposing the topic.
  • The number of opposing sources is subtracted from the number of supporting sources; if the net sum is positive, the candidate counts as "Pro"; if negative, the candidate counts as "Con."
  • Click on the candidate's name to see the list of information sources, and whether we rate is as supporting or opposing.
  • Click on the date of each information source to see a full excerpt and context.

    Key for Pro votes:
  • An aboslute YES vote: 5 or more net supporting information sources, indicating consistent and long-standing support
  • A solid YES vote: 3 or 4 net supporting information sources, indicating substantive support
  • A likely YES vote: 1 or 2 net supporting information sources, indicating some support but not enough for certitude.
  • If a candidate has a net zero supporting information sources (or no information sources), that candidate is not listed above at all.

    Key for Con votes:
  • An absolute NO vote: 5 or more net opposinginformation sources, indicating consistent and long-standing opposition
  • A solid NO vote: 3 or 4 net opposing information sources, indicating substantive opposition
  • A likely NO vote: 1 or 2 net opposing information sources, indicating some opposition but not enough for certitude.


  • The above list is not fully inclusive; many House challengers are not included, but all House incumbents are eligibla.
  • All major-party Senate candidates (and incumbents) are eligible; and most Senate challengers are, too.
  • Some of the candidates listed above lost in the primary, but are still listed.
