Donate now to support Bold Nebraska's efforts on the ground in Nebraska to stop the Keystone XL pipeline, and protect our land, water and climate.
Bold is supporting landowners in the path of Keystone XL in their legal challenges to eminent domain for private gain, and the Public Service Commission's approval of the "mainline alternative" route on Nov. 20, 2017. Bold is also party to the federal lawsuit challenging President Trump's unlawful approval of a federal permit for Keystone XL, which a judge ruled on Nov. 22 will move forward to oral arguments.
Bold's arguments against Keystone XL filed with the Public Service Commission:
- Keystone XL isn't needed, and therefore is not in the public interest.
- TransCanada is a foreign corporation using eminent domain for private gain.
- Keystone XL is all liability for Nebraska.
- Water is Nebraska's most valuable resource.
Our costs of fighting Keystone XL include hiring attorneys and experts for the landowners who refused to sell their land to TransCanada; Bold's attorneys and experts we secured for the intervenor process and federal lawsuit; and our on-the-ground organizing to bring supporters to the intervenor hearings, rallies and other events, and to keep building our unlikely alliance dedicated to stopping the pipeline.
