The Nebraska Public Service Commission is moving forward with a scheduled “planning conference” on Thursday, Nov. 19 to discuss TransCanada’s application to build the Keystone XL pipeline — despite the fact that President Obama has already rejected TransCanada’s federal cross-border permit application, with the President and the State Department concluding that the pipeline is not in the U.S. national interest.

According to the PSC:

The Commission will need a record upon which to make a decision in this matter and the planning conference is the start of that process. The Commission will afford an opportunity for all parties to express their views and then the Commission can render its decision.

*Note: There will be no public comment period during Thursday’s planning conference, but the public is welcome to attend.

You can attend in person on Thursday at 10:00 a.m., or listen via phone.
