Senator John Hoeven (R-N.D.) predicts that a new highway bill may pass by June 30, 2012. Members of a House-Senate highway bill conference committee recently met to discuss the long-term surface transportation bill.

Committee members also said the new highway bill is likely to include the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.

"I think we will pass Keystone as part of the highway bill," Hoeven said, in an appearance on C-Span Sunday.
