Governor approves Keystone XL route

Gov. Dave Heineman announced Tuesday that he has approved the final evaluation report on the reroute of TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline.
The revised route passes north to south through Antelope, Boone and Nance counties, and would carry tar sands oil from Canada to refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast.
In a three-page letter to President Barack Obama, Heineman reviewed the process that Nebraska has used in siting the pipeline, including the final review and evaluation report by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality.
The pipeline reroute was the subject of a lengthy public hearing in Albion Dec. 4, 2012.
