On Monday, Nov. 20, the Nebraska Public Service Commission will issue an order on the Keystone XL Pipeline application.
If approved, the pipeline would run through the eastern Nebraska sandhills, carrying tar sand oil from Canada as well as light crude oil from the northern U.S. to the Gulf of Mexico.
The five commissioners will vote during the commission meeting beginning at 10 a.m. in the PSC Hearing Room, 1200 N Street, Suite 300, Lincoln.
There will be no comment from the commission with regard to the decision because the process is a legal proceeding and there is potential for appeal, PSC spokeswoman Deb Collins said.
The PSC held four public hearings earlier this year on the pipeline in York, O’Neill, Norfolk and Ralston. More than 30 hours of public comment were placed in the records of the meetings for the commissioners to consider.
Space in the hearing room is limited; entry will be allowed on a first come, first serve basis, Collins said.
