Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., believes the energy-efficiency bill she co-sponsored with Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, would be able to clear the House of Representatives even without a Keystone XL pipeline amendment. Shaheen's statement was in response to remarks by Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., that the Keystone amendment is crucial to the bill's House passage. "I actually don't agree with that. We have seen the House say that they are committed to do something around energy efficiency," Shaheen said.
