Senate panel sets hearing on Keystone XL

The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee will hold a hearing on the contentious Keystone XL oil pipeline next week.

The hearing, announced Tuesday, will be the first one held by new chairwoman Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska).

Notice of the hearing comes as Republicans are gearing up to take control of the Senate.

Before the end of the 113th Congress, incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said legislation approving the $8 billion oil sands project would be the first item brought to the floor by the GOP in January.

Given gas prices nothing is going to go through that pipe, even if built.
