BOLD Nebraska Supports Pipeline Health Study

Senate Environment and Public Works Chair Barbara Boxer along with Senator Sheldon Whitehouse are asking the State Department to conduct an independent comprehensive study of potential health impacts associated with the Key Stone XL Pipeline project.  BOLD Nebraska’s Jane Kleeb supports such a study. She says there are several possible detrimental effects from the proposed pipeline.

Kleeb says with the extra time allowed for comment on the Keystone project there is plenty of time to do such a study. She’s hoping other elected officials will join the Senators in backing the study.

She agrees with Senators Boxer and Whitehouse that based on the human health impacts that are known, building the pipeline is not in the national interest.
