The permit for the final segment of the Keystone XL pipeline was challenged Thursday, Nov. 1, in the Nebraska Supreme Court.  During the permitting process, the Nebraska Public Service Commission rejected two pipeline routes but approved an alternative route. Opponents say the Nebraska PSC had no statutory authority to do that. Lawyers for TransCanada and the PSC say commissioners followed due process, and the alternative route was always part of the discussion.
