Rep. Terry Ignores Serious Tarsands Risks with (here we go again) Pipeline Bill

News
Share
Today, Congressman Lee Terry announced new legislation to speed up the construction of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. The Congressman’s proposal ignores TransCanada’s bad actor status, flies in the face of last week’s Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality report that highlights specific environmental risks and ignores Governor Heineman’s own concerns regarding the Ogallala Aquifer. Serious environmental and health concerns […]

Terry’s support for Congressional bills that would force approval of the (already denied) Keystone XL pipeline not only goes against Nebraskans’ concerns about our land and water, but it is also a fruitless endeavor akin to chasing Moby Dick. President Obama denied TransCanada’s permit request to build the Keystone XL pipeline which […]
