State Department extends review for Keystone XL Pipeline

State Department extends review for Keystone XL Pipeline

April 22, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. (RFD-TV) The State Department has extended the review period for the Keystone XL Pipeline, which means no decision will be made until after the mid-term elections.

The State Department did not give a time frame, but cited a recent decision by a Nebraska judge overturning a state law that allowed the pipeline's path through the state.

That has prompted an ongoing legal battle and the state's Supreme Court isn't expected to rule for several months.

The delay will likely allow the Obama administration to avoid making a final decision until after the November election.
