Trans Canada’s Shawn Howard says he’s not sure what the Nebraska District Court Ruling means for the Keystone XL Project. He says they weren’t part of the lawsuit between the landowners and Nebraska’s Governor and State Agencies. Howard says an appeal has been made on the district court’s decision that found state law 1161 Unconstitutional.

Howard says his company hasn’t broken any rules and has followed all the procedures they’ve been required to.

Howard says President Obama has indicated that the review process concerning Keystone XL will move forward. He says they’re waiting for that and for the U.S. State Department to clarify what the court action means for the review process.
