Lincoln Journal-Star: Not Too Late for Governor, Legislature to Act

October 3, 2011

In a September 30 editorial, the Lincoln (NE) Journal-Star added its two cents that it’s not too late for Nebraska to weigh in on Keystone XL.  South Dakota, the Journal-Star points out, put significant conditions on the pipeline in an order from the Public Utilities Commission (Plains Justice represented South Dakotans in that 2009 docket – see the PUC site for details).  Nebraska could assert similar authority over pipeline siting activities within its borders.  The states’ rights crowd should be thrilled at this opportunity for a state to assert sovereignty that’s been neglected in the past but still very much exists.
