JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers have passed a resolution encouraging President Barack Obama's administration to approve a proposed oil pipeline route through the middle of the United States.
 
The Senate approved the measure endorsing the Keystone XL pipeline with a 24-5 vote on Thursday. The same resolution passed the House earlier this year.
 
Obama told a group of governors at a White House meeting in February that he expects to make a decision on the project's future in a couple of months.
 
The Missouri resolution also encourages the U.S. to drill for oil off the northern coast of Alaska.
Missouri's two U.S. senators and Gov. Jay Nixon have also come out in favor of the Keystone pipeline project.

Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency in Missouri on Thursday as a widespread severe weather system continued to move across the state, bringing heavy rain, hail, high winds, flooding and flash flooding, and at least one reported tornado.

The Governor ordered activation of the State Emergency Operations Center, which has been closely monitoring the storm system.  The team includes officials from the Missouri Department of Public Safety, the State Emergency Management Agency, the Missouri National Guard and the Missouri State Highway Patrol.  

Gov. Nixon has also activated the Missouri State Emergency Operations Plan, which allows state agencies to coordinate directly with local jurisdictions to provide emergency services.
