The Supreme Court of the state of Nebraska has overturned an earlier ruling that had until now held up construction of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.
Early Friday, the state’s highest court reversed a lower court’s 2012 ruling that had previously determined that Gov. Dave Heineman’s decision to approve a path for the pipeline had violated Nebraska’s constitution.
Now with the high court’s blessing, construction of the pipeline may soon proceed through Nebraska, pending how lawmakers in Washington, DC handle the project on a national level.
