PIERRE — The state Senate adopted the resolution supporting the Keystone XL oil pipeline Thursday.
Sen. Larry Lucas, D-Mission, spoke against it, saying the Canadian tar-sands product has environmental risks. Lucas said China is willing to buy it.
Senators voted for the resolution 30-3. The House approved it 57-11 Tuesday. The resolution urges President Obama and the U.S. State Department to approve the pipeline’s federal permits.
