Obama to let Keystone XL review continue

President Barack Obama said Wednesday he won't shortcut the ongoing State Department review of the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline project, minutes after incoming Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said it would be among energy bills he would attempt to pass.

"There's an independent process, it's moving forward, and I'm going to let that process play out," Obama said at his post-election press conference. "I'm just going to gather up the facts."

Obama said he will still evaluate the project on a number of factors, including its impact on global warming and the outcome of a court case in Nebraska. He did not say, however, whether he would veto an approval bill sent to him by congressional Republicans. 

McConnell, R-Ky., earlier Wednesday included the estimated $8 billion project in energy bills he said the new Senate Republican majority will send to Obama in the next Congress.
