Keystone pipeline: TransCanada reapplies after changing route
Politico By DARREN GOODE | 5/4/12 10:28 AM EDT

TransCanada is re-applying for the final stage of the Keystone pipeline !!

It looks like some issues have been addressed and a re-route has been established.

Federal environmental reviews have concluded that the pipeline would have minimal impact.

As expected, TransCanada reapplied Friday for a presidential permit for its Keystone XL pipeline.

The company’s application covers the stretch of the proposed pipeline from the U.S.-Canadian border in Montana to Steele City, Neb. TransCanada will supplement the application once an alternative route is selected within Nebraska.

"Our application for a presidential permit builds on more than three years of environmental review already conducted for Keystone XL," TransCanada President and CEO Russ Girling said in a press release. "It was the most comprehensive process ever for a cross-border pipeline and that work should allow our cross-border permit to be processed expeditiously and a decision made once a new route in Nebraska is determined."

Obama has been against this, but he also said he would expedite the permits faster ....

only later to denounce again

RIPLEY, Okla. — President Obama stood in a red-dirt field before acres of stacked pipeline pieces on Thursday to illustrate his support for expedited construction of the southern leg of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. But his public declaration for the project pleased neither the industry and its Republican allies nor environmentalists.

CUSHING, Okla. — President Barack Obama will use Thursday’s visit to Oklahoma to announce that he's ordered federal agencies to get on the horse to approve the southern part of the Keystone XL pipeline, the White House announced.

[color=cyan]Obama will issue an executive order on federal permitting of infrastructure projects, "which will require agencies to make faster permitting and review decisions for vital infrastructure projects while protecting the health and vitality of local communities and the environment," the White House said.....
He was even smiling when he was talking !!

With the terrible job report, Obama has no choice.

Approve the Keystone Pipeline.

20,000 jobs and he could take credit for it.
