Nebraska Governor supports speeding up Keystone XL process


OMAHA, Nebraska: Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman said on December 12 that he supports efforts to accelerate federal approval of the Keystone XL pipeline.[1] The U.S. State Department has said it plans to delay their decision until 2013, after the presidential election. The delay has prompted Congressional Republicans to pressure the Obama administration to expedite the Keystone permit. On December 13, the House voted 234 to 193 to accelerate the permitting decision. Obama has vowed to veto the bill if it makes it through the Senate.[2]

The pipeline is a $7 billion, 1,700 mile pipeline that would span between the oil sands of Alberta to Gulf Coast refineries. TransCanada have been working on the route for several years. Opposition to the project say the pipeline, which would be built over the Ogallala Aquifer, could put the natural resources of Nebraska at risk if an oil spill were to occur.[3] Heineman called a special election in early November to resolve the Keystone XL issue. Shortly after the special election and international attention, TransCanada agreed to work with Nebraska in finding a suitable route for the pipeline.
