Keystone Pipeline Critics: Neb. Gov. Heineman Lacks Authority

(Lincoln Journal Star)

Opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline argued in Lancaster County District Court on Thursday that Gov. Dave Heineman lacked the authority to approve the proposed route of the project through Nebraska in a Jan. 22 letter to President Barack Obama.

They want Heineman's action voided by Lancaster County District Judge Stephanie Stacy.

Stacy listened to about 20 minutes of arguments from Omaha attorney David Domina and Assistant Attorney General Katie Spohn before adjourning to her chambers to meet with the two sides to discuss a date for a trial that could happen as soon as June.
