The Hill

The White House on Tuesday threatened to veto a wide-ranging transportation package from House Republicans.

The administration raised concerns about a provision to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, and argued the legislation's funding for roads and bridges is inadequate.

"The Administration has serious concerns with provisions in the bill that would make America's roads, rails, and transit systems less safe, reduce the transportation options available to America's traveling public, short circuit local decision-making, and turn back the clock on environmental and labor protections," the White House said in a formal statement of administration policy.
