Our research into different views and aspects of the TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline continues. As many people know who are watching this closely, whether or not a Keystone XL pipeline runs through Nebraska and what route there would be, if approved, has not been decided in a definitive fashion. The recent choice by President Obama to deny permission for the pipeline merely changed the arena for this battle. The fight either way, of getting or stopping the pipeline is not over and will most likely continue with bills in the House and Senate.
If you are interested in guest blogging on this topic or being interviewed or know someone who would be interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would like very much to present as many different sides and aspects to this issue as possible.

Veterans Roundtable with Congressman Lee Terry
Bellevue Chamber: DJ Dugout
A special thank you goes out to Congressman Lee Terry for visiting in Bellevue, Nebraska to discuss veteran affairs and other areas of interest, including the pipeline.
Thanks to Congressman Terry, our Nebraskan Politics blog finally has some number to associate with “permanent” Nebraskan jobs.
“Permanent” for purposes of this topic and our blog is defined as jobs that last the lifetime of the pipeline, so those do not include “temporary” jobs such as those needed for the construction of the pipeline.
Congressman Terry estimates that not more than 30 Nebraskan jobs would be created by the TransCanada Keystone XL Pipeline.
Special thanks also goes out to the Bellevue Chamber for hosting and facilitating another great and informative event.
