A compromise that would let Nebraska influence the route of the Keystone XL and other major oil pipelines has won final approval. Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman signed two bills into law Tuesday to regulate oil pipelines within the state's borders.

One measure would subject the proposed Keystone XL pipeline to a state environmental review. The other would direct the Public Service Commission to review future projects with public input.

Jane Kleeb, whose Bold Nebraska group is leading a campaign opposing the pipeline, will outline later Tuesday how the pipeline's critics plan to proceed once the special session ends.
