Nebraska town meets to discuss XL Pipeline

Posted: Updated:

 Albion was the latest town to debate the proposed pipeline.

More than 160 people signed up to address the packed hearing on Tuesday.

The public hearing was expected to be the only one on the Keystone XL Pipeline route TransCanada wants to use in carrying crude oil to the gulf coast.

Transcanada's Corey Goulet told the assembly that the company thought Nebraska's review of the seven billion, 17–hundred mile project was good and believes the project should be approved.

But Oglala Lakota Nation Vice President Tom Poor Bear says if the pipeline were to leak it would adversely affect the water quality.

Others who attended support the pipeline, saying it would create jobs.
