Landowners, TransCanada Make Arguments For and Against Amended Keystone XL Pipeline Application

Landowners, TransCanada Make Arguments For and Against Amended Keystone XL Pipeline Application

The five members of the Nebraska Public Service Commission (PSC) listened to arguments about the recently approved alternative pipeline route from attorneys representing landowners and TransCanada on Tuesday, December 12.

TransCanada is looking to amend its application in order to address potential questions that will likely come up and lead to further legal battles and delays in construction.

However, those opposed to the pipeline argue that only rejected applications can be amended under routing law. The main route, no matter how flawed that approval may have been, was still approved by the PSC. On top of that, the PSC’s seven-month window to give a final decision ended on November 23.

“The gun has sounded; the game is over. You have no jurisdictional authority now to back up ... so they can amend,” said David Domina, one of the attorneys representing landowners.
