Kansans Weigh In On Keystone XL Pipeline

KSAL StaffJanuary 31, 2014

A new report from the U.S. State Department on the Keystone XL pipeline has drawn varying reactions in Kansas, where a separate section of the Keystone pipeline is operating.

The State Department on Friday raised no major environmental objections to the $7 billion pipeline from Canada, though the report stops short of recommending its approval. Keystone XL would travel through Montana and South Dakota before reaching Nebraska. An existing spur runs through Kansas and Oklahoma to Texas.

Sen. Jerry Moran, a Republican, says in a release the report should push the “job-creating, domestic energy-producing project forward.”

But Marion County Commissioner Dan Holub says the six counties in Kansas where the pipeline runs through “got no big jobs,” and he says he’s also concerned about the possibility of a spill.
