About the bill
On the first day of this Congress, January 3, 2015, 241 bills were introduced in the House and Senate. Legislation introduced on Day 1 is often meant to send a bold statement that “these are our top priorities” by party leadership, so the bill labeled S. 1 is hugely important. S. 1 in the current Senate — as well as H.R. 3 in the House — was the Keystone XL Pipeline Approval Act, addressing a contentious issue related to energy, the environment, and jobs.
