"State Department To Hand Over Keystone XL Docs To Enviro Group"

"The State Department has agreed to begin providing an environmental group with records of communications with various outside lobbying firms and other parties seeking approval of the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline."

"State, in a legal document, agreed to search for documents and begin providing records to the group Friends of the Earth beginning Dec. 6.

The agreement, made in a joint statement with Friends of the Earth, stems from a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit the anti-pipeline group filed against State in July."
