Congress last month was forced to adopt a three-month extension of transportation funding, after House Republicans failed to either accept a bi-partisan funding bill that passed the Senate or pass a bill of their own. And evidently the GOP is not done messing around with this crucial infrastructure funding. According to Roll Call, Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) plans to attach approval of the controversial Keystone XL pipleine to another 90 day extension that he is prepping. Boehner has made a habit of attaching approval of the pipeline to various pieces of legislation over the past several months, in a bid to win Tea Party votes.
