LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Nebraska state commission that is reviewing a proposed route for the Keystone XL pipeline has scheduled another hearing in Ralston to hear public input.
The Nebraska Public Service Commission says it will hold the hearing at the Ralston Arena on July 26 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Doors will open at 9 a.m.
Commissioners will accept comments on a first-come, first-served basis. Speakers will have three to five minutes to give their comments.
The commission has held similar public hearings in Norfolk, York and O'Neill and will hold a more formal evidentiary hearing with legal arguments Aug. 7-11 in Lincoln.
The pipeline would transport oil from Canada, across Montana and South Dakota to Nebraska, where it would connect with an existing pipeline to Texas Gulf Coast refineries.
