Keystone Pipeline:

Pipeline system used to transport synthetic crude oil from the oil sands of Alberta and Canada and crude oil of the Northern United States.

McCaskill: Supports Keystone Pipeline. Votes in favor to speed up the process.

Her Quotes: "When it comes to the Keystone pipeline, it's not a matter of if it's going to be built-it's a matter of when, and where,"

"Moving forward with the pipeline means good jobs for American workers. Missouri families getting squeezed by higher gas prices deserve to know that we're doing everything possible to strengthen America's energy security. That's why I'm fighting to get this project back on track as soon as possible."
