State Department moves ahead gathering comments about Keystone XL pipeline

Keystone XL protesters pose for a photo in 19-degree weather ahead of a public meeting in Billings, Mont., on Tuesday. The State Department is collecting public comments on its revised environmental impact statement for the pipeline.

The State Department has only a few more weeks to gather comments about the proposed Keystone XL pipeline that would cross northeast Montana.

The comments are necessary because the proposed pipeline would cross the border with Canada and the State Department has a revised environmental impact statement for the line. The line, if built, would carry tar sands oil from Hardisty, Canada across Montana, South Dakota and to Steele City, Nebraska.
