The Nebraska Supreme Court heard arguments on Thursday, Nov. 1, about the permitting process for the Keystone XL pipeline.

Jennifer Baker says the required consultation of tribes has not been completed, and surveys of historical and cultural resources were not done for the alternative route approved in Nebraska.
