Keystone XL Pipeline: PUC Allows Opponents As Intervening Parties
The Keystone XL pipeline has another hurdle to jump in South Dakota. TransCanada failed to start construction within four years of receiving a site permit from the Public Utilities Commission, so now it has to prove it still meets conditions. People and groups from South Dakota and elsewhere are lining up to oppose the certification of the permit.
Tuesday, at a PUC meeting, the commissioners heard a debate on who should be accepted as an intervening party.
