Sierra Club Pleased Court Action Moving On Keystone Project

Sierra Club Pleased Court Action Moving On Keystone Project

Court action is moving forward on TransCanada’s proposed Keystone Pipeline project. A Nebraska judge has ordered that a trial be held on a landowner’s suit seeking to declare unconstitutional a state law that allowed movement of the project and gave the Governor authority to approve or reject the project.  Nebraska Sierra Club’s Ken Winston says he’s glad landowners will get their case heard.

A pretrial conference on the Nebraska case is set for July 19 with the actual trial date set then and that likely will take place in either August or September.  Winston says in addition to the state court action. The National Sierra Club has filed a lawsuit charging that the person who drew up the environmental impact statement on the Keystone project had financial ties to the Canadian company.

Winston would not predict any time line for the federal court action
