Official: White House to nix US-Canada pipeline
Official says White House to reject proposed $7 billion oil pipeline from Canada to Texas
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' A senior Obama administration official says the White House will reject a Canadian company's plan to build an oil pipeline from Canada to Texas.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision has not been announced, says a February deadline set by Congress doesn't allow for a proper review of the $7 billion project.

The Feb. 21 deadline was set by a GOP-written provision as part of a tax bill that Obama signed into law just before Christmas. Obama had until that date to decide whether the pipeline was in the national interest.

The 1,700-mile pipeline would carry oil from tar sands in western Canada to refineries in Texas. It would pass through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma.
