President Obama might be compelled to make a decision on the Keystone pipeline before the election after all.

Though the president just rejected a permit for the controversial project, Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman told Fox News that he expects to send the Obama administration a new proposed route for the pipeline well before Election Day.

“I fully expect we could get it done certainly in the early September, August time frame,” the governor told Fox News on Thursday. “I would send the letter back to the president of the United States saying we approve it and if he were decisive, he could turn around and approve it shortly thereafter, well before the November election.”
