Obama to make Keystone decision in next couple months

Updated 3:33 p.m. ET, 2/24/2014

(CNN) – President Barack Obama will decide whether to go forward with the Keystone XL pipeline in the next couple months, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin said on Monday.

"I did ask the President when we could anticipate a decision on the Keystone pipeline. I asked him if he could use his executive order power to do that, but finally he did come back and say that he anticipates an answer one way or the other in a couple of months," Fallin told reporters at a news conference after a meeting between governors and the President at the White House.
