Nebraska forces TransCanada to rethink Keystone XL pipeline

The Nebraska State Public Service Commission has denied a motion for the reconsideration of an alternative route for TransCanada's proposed Keystone XL Pipeline.
Landowner’s Attorney Brian Jorde of the Domina Law Group in Omaha says Tuesday’s ruling means TransCanada has no avenue to request alternative relief from the PSC. He says TransCanada has the option of appealing Tuesday’s PSC decision to the Nebraska Court of Appeals. Jorde says the PSC ruling is a landmark one that is a huge win for landowners opposing the Keystone XL oil pipeline project. Jorde says with TransCanada having their motion denied by the State PSC means they won’t likely be successful with any appeal.

In 2016 even earth hater South Dakota Public Utilities Commissioner Chris Nelson said the Keystone XL won’t happen without State Department approval.
Launching a $30,000 fundraising drive for a kitchen at Wiconi Un Tipi Camp, the No KXL Dakota Alliance announced a November 21 signing ceremony for the International Treaty to Protect the Sacred Against Tar Sands and the KXL Pipeline. The camp in Lower Brule is strategically located to block the path of a proposed power line that TransCanada Corp. has slated to carry electricity to a pumping station on the Keystone XL tar-sands crude pipeline route through unceded 1868 Ft. Laramie Treaty territory.

In November poor construction on TransCanada's Keystone I caused a spill of some 210,000 gallons of crude oil into a Marshall County, South Dakota ecosystem.

Despite the construction of the Keystone and Dakota Excess Pipelines fuel costs in the region are soaring.
