WASHINGTON (AP) -- U.S. state governors are quoting President Barack Obama as saying he expects to decide on the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline in the next couple of months.

Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman, a Republican who supports the pipeline, said Obama was asked about Keystone Monday at a White House meeting with about 40 governors. Heineman and Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin said Obama told governors he expects a decision "in the next couple of months," but didn't offer a specific timetable. Fallin, a Republican who chairs the National Governors Association, also supports Keystone.

A White House spokesman said he would not provide details of a private discussion with governors, and said review of the Canada-to-Texas pipeline remains at the State Department.

A Nebraska judge struck down the route through that state last week.
