Nebraska law officers discuss pipeline security

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

 LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska law officers are already discussing security
arrangements for construction of an oil pipeline, even though the pipeline hasn't
 been given a final federal blessing.
   The Lincoln Journal reports  that the Nebraska State Patrol invited county sheriffs
 and prosecutors along the pipeline's path through Nebraska to a meeting in Grand
 Island last week.
   Nancy County Sheriff Dave Moore says the law officers are anticipating Nebraska
 protests that would echo those occurring during construction of the pipeline
leg between Cushing, Okla., and refineries on the Gulf Coast in Texas.
   Pipeline opponent Jane Kleeb (klehb) says there likely would be acts of civil
 disobedience in Nebraska but no violence.
   The proposed Keystone XL pipeline would deliver 830,000 barrels of U.S. and
Canadian crude oil per day to the refineries.
