Congress subpoenas John Kerry over Keystone Pipeline

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Congress is bringing back the fight over the Keystone XL Pipeline, issuing a subpoena to Secretary of State John Kerry.

Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee say they want a look at department documents, reports and letters.

They say Kerry has been quote, "uncooperative" and they need those records as they move forward.

The $8-billion pipeline would transport oil from Canada's Tar Sands to pipelines linked to refineries in the Gulf of Mexico.

Earlier this year, Congress approved legislation to build it, but the president vetoed it.
