Who Will Pay to Protect South Dakota Fossils?

Construction of the Keystone Pipeline

The press has been covering the story of TransCanada’s request to change the approval conditions the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission put on the Keystone XL pipeline.

While TransCanada has proposed several changes, the news coverage has focused on TransCanada’s desire to shift costs associated with fossils found during construction away from itself, to landowners.

Argus Leader story

Starting on page 14 of this legal filing, you can read why the Commissioners shouldn’t vote to shift the costs.
