KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE RULING NEARS, ‘COMPROMISE’ TALKS RENEWED

The Public Service Commission is nearing the end of its deadline for making a decision on whether or not to approve the Keystone XL pipeline. Some people are speculating that the decision will come two weeks from today. Jane Kleeb has recently offered to take possibility of high profile anti-pipeline protests off the table if the route is altered to run as a twin line 60 miles to the east of the already existing Keystone pipeline. That move is one of three likely options facing the PSC, the other two involve approving or denying the pipeline outright. TransCanada has played down the idea, defending its preferred route by saying that this route was selected because of it was the environmentally responsible route.
