Wisconsin's Pipeline Would Pump More Than Keystone XL

Congress gave the green light to the the Keystone XL pipeline. The bill now goes to President Obama, who has promised a veto.

The hotly debated pipeline would carry more than 800,000 barrels of crude oil each day from Canada through the Great Plains, but a little known pipeline in Wisconsin would pump even more oil.

A company called Enbridge wants to boost the capacity of an existing pipeline called Line 61 that runs across the state, from the northern town of Superior, south to the Illinois border.
