"The review process is a top priority for Nebraska.” - Gov. Dave Heineman

Gov. Dave Heineman signed into law legislation that will allow the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) to evaluate the route of any currently proposed or future pipeline in the state.

The pipeline bill, LB 1161e, will take effect April 18, at 12:01 a.m. CT, with the review process being a top priority for the NDEQ, led by Director Mike Linder.

“Nebraska will move forward on the review process of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline and any future pipelines that will create jobs and reduce U.S. dependence on Middle Eastern oil,” said Gov. Heineman. “The review process is a top priority for Nebraska.”
