The Daily Record: Legal Defense Fund Focused on Pipeline Project, Protecting Landowner Rights

The Daily Record covered Attorney Brian Jorde's speech at the annual Nebraska Farmers Union Convention. Mr. Jorde represents the Nebraska Easement Action Team (NEAT) a non-profit organization advocating for landowner rights and a better route for the Keystone XL pipeline. Should the plan go through, TransCanada's Keystone XL will extend from Hardisty, Alberta, Canada to an existing pipeline in Steele City, Nebraska. TransCanada is currently waiting for approval from the U.S. State Department because cross-border projects such as this require a Presidential Permit. The project is also under investigation by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality who will then send a report to Governor Heineman. If the Governor approves the route based on the department's findings, Jorde states "that act alone instantly vests eminent domain rights over Nebraskans' land in TransCanada."
