Neb. Lawmakers To Meet With TransCanada

LINCOLN (AP) - A group of Nebraska lawmakers will meet next week with a Canadian pipeline operator official to discuss concerns about the proposed route of the Keystone XL pipeline through the state over the Ogallala aquifer. Speaker of the Legislature Mike Flood of Norfolk announced the meeting at a news conference Wednesday. Asked whether a special legislative session is likely to be called to address pipeline concerns, Flood said he believes more than a majority of lawmakers are leaning toward calling a special session. But Flood says he thinks it's too early to do so.
