State Dept. To Meet With Nebr. Officials Again

LINCOLN (AP) - The U.S. State Department is offering to meet again with Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman, lawmakers and other state officials who have concerns about the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. Assistant Secretary of State Kerri-Ann Jones said in a letter to Heineman the department has worked closely and cooperatively with other states where the oil pipeline is expected to cross. The letter came in response to a written inquiry from Heineman as to whether the state has authority to choose the pipeline's route.
