Delay possible in decision on controversial Keystone XL Pipeline

Filed Under: Canada | Environment | National | Politics
More on: keystone xl pipeline, state

The State Department is reviewing comments on the controversial Keystone XL Pipeline but a final decision might not come until next year, Bloomberg News reports.

The department received 1.5 million public comments to the draft supplemental environmental impact statement that was issued in March. The final document won't be published for at least another 105 days, pushing a decision into mid-December or January 201, Bloomberg said.

The pipeline route starts in Canada, crosses the border and runs through eight states. Tribes oppose the project due to concerns about water, sacred sites, the environment and their treaty lands.
