On Friday, House Democrats led by Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) introduced legislation that would ban exports of the output of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, including refinery output, ensuring that its crude oil and gasoline would benefit American consumers. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR), Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), and Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) have all indicated that they are likely to support the initiative to ensure Americans aren’t assuming the risk of a foreign oil pipeline entirely for foreign benefit.
