Public Service Commission schedules May 3 public meeting in York on Keystone XL pipeline


LINCOLN — The Nebraska Public Service Commission has scheduled a May 3 public meeting in York on the Keystone XL pipeline.

Members of the public are invited to provide input on the controversial pipeline, which would carry heavy crude from western Canada to refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast. TransCanada Corp., the company building the pipeline, has submitted an application seeking approval of a roughly 275-mile route through the state.

The meeting will be from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Holthus Convention Center just north of the York interchange on Interstate 80. Doors open at 8 a.m., and speakers will have up to five minutes to share their comments on a first-come basis.

The PSC has not yet announced whether additional public meetings will be held at other locations. In addition, the commission will hold a formal public hearing on the pipeline application the week of Aug. 7 in Lincoln.
