Helena, MT — On Friday, the Nebraska Supreme Court affirmed the Nebraska Public Service Commission’s approval of the Keystone XL oil pipeline route.
The Montana Chamber of Commerce released the following statement. “This is exciting news, as the Keystone XL pipeline is critical infrastructure that will enhance the energy sector in Montana and North America,” said Todd O’Hair, Montana Chamber of Commerce president/CEO. “In addition to providing safe, good-paying and local jobs in Montana, it will be a great economic boost for the state. We are excited to see this project continue moving forward.”
Keystone XL has permits to construct in all three states along the route, along with a presidential permit. These permits were issued after extensive review in Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska – reviews that were on top of the three major environmental reviews done at the federal level.
