MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes” Covers Nebraska Keystone XL Lawsuit

Bold Nebraska energy director Ben Gotschall was scheduled to appear on MSNBC host Chris Hayes’ “All In With Chris Hayes” show last night, but a conflict with the local remote studio saw his appearance bumped (although he does appear in a clip wearing his cowboy hat!)

In the clip below, Chris talks about Wednesday’s ruling in Thompson v. Heineman, which found LB 1161 to be unconstitutional. The law had tried to circumvent the process laid out in the Nebraska state constitution for pipeline siting, bypassing the Public Service Commission and giving eminent domain authority to Gov. Dave Heineman — who promptly granted eminent domain power to TransCanada for Keystone XL. 

Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning has already filed an appeal of Judge Stacy’s ruling. The appeals process is expected to take at least six months, and up to a year or more. 

We are also excited to welcome MSNBC’s Ed Schultz and “The Ed Show” to Nebraska today! Be sure to tune in and watch us at 4:00 p.m. CT / 5:00 p.m. ET today on MSNBC. Click here for details and an invitation to help us welcome Ed and his team to our state

Below is an excellent segment that Chris Hayes did recently on the pipeline: “Keystone XL: Time to End the Addiction“:
