Parties in the Keystone XL pipeline hearings in Pierre made opening statements Monday afternoon. Both opponents and proponents outlined what case they’ll try to make during the seven-day hearing, held before the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission. SDPB’s Victoria Wicks is in Pierre covering the hearing held to determine if TransCanada can still meet the conditions set when the PUC gave the company its 2010 permit to build.
