State Department: No Decision Yet On Oil Pipeline

washington


The State Department says there's been no decision yet on a Canadian company's plan to build an oil pipeline from Canada to Texas.

Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland disputes media reports that the Obama was rejecting the project and says it's her "understanding" that a decision hadn't been made.

The administration has said it probably won't meet the February 21 deadline that Congress has set for a final decision on a pipeline permit.

Administration officials say that looming deadline has cut short the time needed to conduct required environmental reviews after the State Department ordered the project developer to find an alternate
route that avoids environmentally sensitive areas of Nebraska.
