The debate and battle over the TransCanada Keystone XL Pipeline continues with efforts in the Senate to this via Senator John Hoeven (R-ND) with an amendment to the transportation bill.
The bill summary & status information for S.2041 is located here: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/D?d112:4:./temp/~bdwpPi::
Those opposed to the pipeline began an online petition campaign. They were requesting 500,000 people to sign. The timeline for this was very brief, 24 hours. This goal was reached in much less than that time but they asked people to continue past the goal.
Update: As of 5:30 PM Eastern, 798,464 have signed.
