Amendments called up to S.1, Keystone pipeline

Several amendments have been called up to S.1, a bill to approve the Keystone XL pipeline. There are now 13 first degree amendments and the Murkowski substitute amendment pending. Senator Sanders attempted to call up an additional amendment, but Senator Murkowski asked that he wait until the Republicans were ready with their next amendment so that we can continue to offer amendments in an alternating fashion.
