Keystone XL fate still undetermined

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is calling for further study of TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline in a letter it sent to the State Department this week, calling the department’s analysis of the pipeline’s environmental impact “insufficient.” The State Department, which has studied the project for about four years, issued a draft report in March that said the project would not have significant environmental impact. There’s no decision yet on the fate of the pipeline, and the State Department is expected to issue its final report this summer and make a recommendation to President Barack Obama on whether or not the project should be approved.
