    The controversial Keystone XL Pipeline which would run from from Canada to Texas,  has received more support, this time from the Governor of Nebraska.

    Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman has sent a letter to President Obama giving his approval to a new route for the Keystone XL Pipeline.

    Heineman's concern was the environmentally sensitive Sandhills region, but a recent report by Nebraska's Department of Environmental Quality indicated the new route would avoid it.

    However, environmentalists say there are more concerns like the Ogallala Aquifer. They've also filed a lawsuit, in state court, challenging the Governor's power over these types of decisions.
