Nebraskans will have a chance to weigh in on the proposed Keystone XL pipeline route at two meetings scheduled in September.

U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns says the meetings he requested will be held on Sept. 27 in Lincoln and Sept. 29 in Atkinson.

Johanns says it has become increasingly obvious in his conversations with constituents that Nebraskans are opposed to the
route proposal. The plan calls for a Canadian tar sands oil pipeline to run through part of the Nebraska Sandhills and near the Ogallala Aquifer.

The Lincoln meeting will take place at the Pershing Center from
noon to 3:30 p.m. and from 4 to 8 p.m. The Atkinson meeting is scheduled for 4:30 to 10 p.m. at West Holt High School.
