The Rosebud Sioux Tribe Utilities Commission is holding two days of hearings on the Keystone XL pipeline. The commission is responding to TC Energy's plans to build a pipeline that crosses Rosebud trust land adjacent to the reservation. The commission served notice of the hearing on TC Energy, formerly TransCanada, but no representatives showed up. The hearing started on Tuesday, May 28, and continued the next day.
