Keystone XL Foes Undaunted By State Dept. Report

February 1, 2014, 2:23 PM

Keystone XL Foes Undaunted By State Dept. Report
LINCOLN, NE -

With another hurdle removed for the Keystone XL pipeline, opponents are pressing lawsuits challenging the project, plus public protests and campaigns to inject the issue into the 2014 elections.

Supporters and opponents are both claiming victories with the U.S. State Department report released Friday, which raised no major objections to the pipeline. The oil industry, some union groups and congressional Republicans called on President Barack Obama to move forward with the project, while a coalition of landowners and environmentalists say the president still has wiggle room to deny a federal permit.

Meanwhile, farmers and ranchers in Nebraska are planning to run for seats on a state board that would regulate power stations for the pipeline. And national activists say more than 75,000 volunteers are willing to participate in civil disobedience.
