Louisiana Oil and Gas Association President Don Briggs is not surprised President Barack Obama said no to a proposal to build the Keystone Pipeline. Obama's decision ended a seven-year debate over the Canada-to-Texas project that energy advocates said would create thousands of jobs and lower gas prices.

Senator Mary Landrieu has convinced her colleagues to vote on requiring White House approval of the controversial Keystone Pipeline.
