Tell your state senator: Keep Keystone XL out of the Sandhills
This action is no longer current. You can urge President Obama to reject the Keystone XL pipeline here: http://action.foe.org/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=8295
In a victory for Nebraskans who’ve stood up for their water and livelihoods, Governor Heineman has called a special session of the Unicameral to address TransCanada's proposed Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline.
Now the fight to pass meaningful state laws to protect Nebraskans begins.
State senators have the power to prohibit toxic pipelines like Keystone XL from going through ecologically sensitive areas like the Sandhills and the Ogallala Aquifer and to prevent oil firms like TransCanada from bullying landowners.
