Nebraska law enforcement plan for pipeline security|
Nebraska law officers are already discussing security arrangements for construction of an oil pipeline, even though the pipeline hasn't been given a final federal blessing. The Nebraska State Patrol invited county sheriffs and prosecutors along the pipeline's path through Nebraska to a meeting in Grand Island last week. Nance County Sheriff Dave Moore says the law officers are anticipating Nebraska protests that would echo those occurring during construction of the pipeline leg between Cushing, Okla., and refineries on the Gulf Coast in Texas. Pipeline opponent Jane Kleeb says there likely would be acts of civil disobedience in Nebraska but no violence.
