PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — The state Public Utilities Commission is holding a meeting for the public to provide input to the regulatory board on the portion of the Keystone XL pipeline that would run through South Dakota.
The commission announced Monday that the public meeting is scheduled for July 6 at the South Dakota state Capitol in Pierre.
The public meeting precedes a key commission hearing starting at the end of July on whether to allow construction of the pipeline through South Dakota.
For the project to move forward, regulators must agree that conditions for construction of the pipeline haven't changed since its initial 2010 authorization.
