Trump Admin: Keystone XL Would Have No Major Impact On Nebraska

"LINCOLN, Neb. — A new planned route for the Keystone XL pipeline through Nebraska would not have a major impact on the state’s water, land or wildlife, according to an updated environmental study produced by the Trump administration.

The U.S. State Department released a draft study Monday of the pipeline’s potential environmental impact in Nebraska, where opponents have repeatedly thwarted the project. The study is now subject to public input through Aug. 29 before it’s finalized.

The announcement marks another step in pipeline developer TransCanada’s quest to finish the 1,184-mile oil pipeline, although the company continues to face obstacles in Nebraska."
