Keystone XL Pipeline gets nod from Nebraska Supreme Court

Source: The Hill

The controversial Keystone XL Pipelineís plan to pass through Nebraska was approved Friday by the stateís highest court, according to the Nebraska Supreme Courtís online filings.

The Keystone pipeline faces further hurdles ahead, including a federal lawsuit in Montana seeking to block construction, as well as ongoing opposition from Native American tribes throughout Nebraska and South Dakota that have pledged to protest if construction is approved.
