Though the president just rejected a permit for the controversial project, Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman told Fox News that he expects to send the Obama administration a new proposed route for the pipeline well before Election Day.
"I fully expect we could get it done certainly in the early September, August time frame," the governor told Fox News on Thursday. "I would send the letter back to the president of the United States saying we approve it and if he were decisive, he could turn around and approve it shortly thereafter, well before the November election."

Although the governor of Nebraska doesn't think it is necessary for The United States to wait for the final route before signing off on the project.
you wanted to know the path, w/e they decide, it'll be more or less along the same path, a few minor adjustment due to some stupid butterfly or something isn't going to matter one hill of beans
But Heineman disputes any suggestion that the federal government needs lots of time to review his state's new study. He said the project already received initial approval from the State Department for the earlier route, before the department backed off upon objections from environmentalists.
As Obama rejected the permit for Keystone saying there wasn't enough time to review at the federal level, Heineman questioned why -- since the state and the company have already agreed to reroute the pipeline through a less sensitive area.
"So again, the State Department had already approved the route that was much more environmentally sensitive, and so in my view, he should have said 'yes' to allow this to move forward. There's so much at stake for this country," he said.

They will never settle on a route. It'll be "approved" and all ready to go, but those pesky ol' Republicans just won't let it through because "they and their splinter groups" keep filing suite.:smile:
My my the hypocrisy level in this pack of BS is at critical levels. So, he didn't want to sign a bill that would have created thousands of jobs but the stimulus boondoggle was passed before even one page was read. Hell, Pelosi said it needed to be passed so they could see what was in it.As Obama rejected the permit for Keystone saying there wasn't enough time to review at the federal level
It's amazing that even a lying, smarmy shitbird like Carney can say that without laughing.
Unless they are planning to get the state and federal governments to use eminent domain to get the land for them even though TransCanada is a private company.
Well, it worked with Kelo and I know how happy Conservatives were about that.
