Keystone XL-Pipeline Citizen Rally
Bold Nebraska has put together a Citizen Rally in Nebraska to make our voices heard. This is a very important time to act because so far our state elected officials have failed to pass any state regulations or to change the pipeline route. Also, Sec. Clinton is not holding a second round of hearings for citizens and state agencies to comment on the revised environmental study. So, let's bring the comments not only to our state elected officials but also to the State Department. If they won't act, citizens will! On May 12, Citizen Rally's are being held across all of the states potentially affected by the TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline.
Please save this date, Thursday, May 12, from Noon til 2pm, at the State Capitol in Lincoln, Nebraska and join with other concerned Nebraskans to gather comments to submit to Secretary Clinton and to urge the Unicameral, Governor Heineman & Attorney General Bruning to pass state-based oil pipeline regulations. This is a great opportunity to weigh in on the three landowner protectionary bills that have stalled in the Natural Resources Committee.
There will be a bus carrying NE citizens coming from Stuart, NE, at 6:30am from Stracke Bar & Grille on the north side of Hwy 20. The bus will head south through O'Neill on Hwy 281 to Grand Island. Then it will head east on I-80 to Lincoln. If you would like to ride the bus, call 402-217-5217 or Lynda Buoy at 402-684-2209. Leave a message & she will call you back.
Take a long lunch if you can, or make an afternoon of it! Please show up at the Capitol a little before noon - but if you can't make it and want to submit a comment, please get your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday morning. The hearing room is TBA. Please pass the word along!!
WHEN: Thursday, May 12, noon - 2 p,m.
WHERE: State Capitol Bldg., Lincoln
