Nebraskans to Keep Fighting Keystone XL Pipeline

Nebraskans to Keep Fighting Keystone XL Pipeline

The landowners and environmental activists against the TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline vowed at yesterday's State Department hearing to keep fighting, even if the pipeline gets the presidential seal of approval. Hundreds of pipeline opponents gathered at this hearing, which is poised to be the last State Department hearing on this subject. Yesterday's meeting harkens the end of a years-long review of this highly controversial project. These landowners and environmentalists are unrelenting in their fight against the pipeline, some even stating that they would stand at the border and stop the bulldozers themselves should it come to that. Proponents of the pipeline argue that failure to approve the Keystone XL route in Nebraska would not only cost jobs, but make the U.S. even more dependent on foreign oil from countries such as Saudi Arabia. Brian Jorde of Domina Law Group, the lawyer representing NEAT, has not yet met with TransCanada and likely won't while the presidential permit application is active.
