“Keystone XL never has been and never will be in Nebraska’s public interest,” said Bold Alliance president Jane Kleeb. “This is a foreign pipeline, headed to the foreign export market, wanting to use eminent domain for private gain on Nebraska landowners. We are confident the PSC will follow the rules they set forth and reject the proposed route that still crosses the Sandhills and risks the Ogallala Aquifer.”
