President Barack Obama rejected TransCanada 1,700 mile Keystone XL pipeline permit this afternoon. The Canada-to-Texas pipeline would run through parts of Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma and on to Texas. The company plans to reapply for a permit as soon as next week. The President says he turned down the proposal because of the 60 day deadline Congress gave him which wasn’t enough time for a thorough review of the project. The State Department did order the project developer to find an alternate route to avoid environmentally sensitive areas of Nebraska. Canada’s Prime Minister Steven Harper says he’s disappointed by Obama’s decision to reject the plan.
