Federal Government Requiring a Supplemental EIS Report for Keystone XL

March 16, 2011

The Argus Leader reported March 15, that the US State Department has announced that it will release another Environmental Impact Statement concerning the Keystone XL pipeline project, that is set to run through the middle of the Unite States. This is considered a major victory for environmental groups and land owners who have been fighting against approval of the project.

“It’s a very wise decision by the State Department to measure twice before you cut once,” said Rick Hauffe of the National Wildlife Federation, which has lobbied against the pipeline.

TransCanada, the oil company that would be operating the pipeline, could not be reached for an immediate response regarding these most recent developments.
