Will the SD PUC Maintain Protections for Keystone XL Landowners?

April 30, 2010

The South Dakota statehouse, home of the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission

Yesterday, on behalf of Dakota Rural Action, Plains Justice filed a response to TransCanada’s request that the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission change the approval conditions the Commissioners put on the Keystone XL pipeline.

A number of TransCanada’s proposed changes would make the conditions less beneficial to landowners and more beneficial to TransCanada.

The Commissioners are scheduled to vote on the proposed changes at their meeting on Tuesday, May 4. To read the agenda or listen live to the proceeding, visit this PUC webpage.

    Carrie La Seur, Ph.D., J.D., Founder and President of Plains Justice, a public-interest and environmental law center, gave an amazing presentation at the annual meeting of the Council on Foundations concerning the risks to humans and damage to the environment from the ultra-heavy tar sands crude oil operations in the Dakotas, and the legal challenges being pursued by Plains Justice. La Seur is nothing short of amazing.
