Pipeline Community Meetings, Help Write the Rules

Bold and partner groups are hosting a series of meetings to update the community on the status of TransCanada’s rejected Keystone XL, the possibilities of a new application, happenings in Washington and to get input on Nebraska’s Public Service Commission (PSC) public comment process for certifying oil pipeline routes.

Our goal of the community meetings is to not only give updates on the pipeline, but to get input on what we as citizens and landowners think the PSC should consider when analyzing and certifying oil pipeline routes.

The PSC is now in charge of any new route that TransCanada will submit to the state of Nebraska. Sen. Smith is trying to pass a bill to provide a loophole for TransCanada to get their “new route” analyzed now through the DEQ rather than wait for the PSC process to be in place.

Sen. Smith’s bill is a loophole and written just for TransCanada. Our state should be abe to move forward with creating a state-based, transparent process for both oil companies and the public on the certification of pipeline routes through the PSC rather than the rules changing whenever TransCanada wants them changed.

The meeting schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, March 27th, 7:00pm
First Unitarian Church
3114 Harney Street
Omaha

Thursday, March 29th, 7:00pm
O’Neill Community Center
501 South 4th (Hwy 281)

Monday, April 2nd, 7:00pm
American Legion
204 Broadway
Fullerton

Thursday, Aptil 5th, 7:00pm

Unitarian Church of Lincoln
6300 A Street
Lincoln

Please plan to attend and bring friends and family. We will be gathering public comments to deliver to the PSC, so the more public input the better! Of course, we will serve our signature #nokxl cookies and lemonade.
