Oil Pipeline Bills In Nebraska Headed For Approval

Oil Pipeline Bills In Nebraska Headed For Approval
LINCOLN, NE - A compromise that would let Nebraska influence the route of the Keystone XL and other major oil pipelines is slated for final approval.

Lawmakers are set to vote Tuesday on two bills to regulate oil pipelines within the state's borders. Gov. Dave Heineman has said he supports the measures, and has scheduled a bill-signing ceremony after the vote.

One measure would subject the proposed Keystone XL pipeline to a state environmental review. The other would direct the Public Service Commission to review future projects with public input.

Jane Kleeb, executive director of the group Bold Nebraska, has scheduled news conference to outline how pipeline critics will proceed once the special session ends. Bold Nebraska has led a citizen campaign against the Keystone XL along with environmental groups and landowners.
