Heineman to take time with pipeline proposal|
Governor Heineman says he will take his time in evaluating the Department of Environmental Quality report on the proposed alternative route for the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Jane Kleeb of Bold Nebraska is harshly critical of the report, calling it a 5-Million dollar document written for TransCanada. John Hansen with the Nebraska Farmers Union says that while TransCanada might technically be re-routing Keystone XL away from the Sand Hills, it isn't moving it enough to avoid environmental problems. TransCanada spokesman Grady Semmens concerns expressed about the safety of the pipeline have been overblown. TransCanada now waits. Heineman has 30 days to accept or reject the route.
