The Omaha congressman's bill would begin construction, but stop at the Nebraska line.
Congressman Lee Terry wants to get the ball rolling again on the Keystone XL oil pipeline. He's introduced a bill that would start construction on the northern tier of the Keystone pipeline.
Terry says the work would start at the Canadian border, but would stop at the Nebraska line. "We make it very clear that Nebraska is not involved with this," he said, "so that construction can be planned and people can go back to work, at least in Montana and South Dakota."
The congressman says something has to be done to show Trans-Canada the US is serious about the project. China recently purchased a major oil company in Calgary, and is taking all the necessary steps to secure the tar-sands in the area for its own use.
