Senator wants pipeline route review back on track

February 17, 2012

LINCOLN - - The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality could continue to review alternative routes for the TransCanda Keystone XL pipeline to avoid the Sandhills, despite recent action by the federal government, if a bill introduced by Sen. Jim Smith of Papillion was passed.

On Feb. 16, the Natural Resources Committee heard testimony on the bill, LB1161. The bill is a "simple amendment" to the two pipeline-related bills passed during last year's special session, Smith said.
On Feb. 14, Smith introduced an amendment to his bill to address the recent federal action, he said.
