Discussion continues about Keystone XL pipeline

Posted: Updated:

A group supporting the Keystone XL Pipeline has released a study saying that Nebraska would benefit greatly from the pipeline.

The Consumer Energy Alliance says Nebraska would see an estimated 1.8 billion dollars in revenue and thousands of jobs if the project is approved.

It immediately drew criticism from "Bold Nebraska," which opposes the pipeline.

The group says the report used economic and job growth data form TransCanada's original report, which has been discredited.

The proposed pipeline would run almost 300 miles through Nebraska.

Governor Heineman hasn't announced whether he will approve the plan.

He says he's still reviewing the report.
