Nebraska Congressman Lee Terry is promising big news Monday afternoon about that controversial Keystone XL Pipeline.
Terry will be joined by a few other representatives from around the state when he announces new legislation meant to protect and speed up construction of the northern leg of the pipeline. A news conference is set for 1 p.m.
The proposed pipeline would carry crude oil from Canada to Texas refineries, passing through Nebraska. Some have objected to the route under the Sandhills and Ogallala aquifer, a massive groundwater supply in the western part of the state.
