Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman, a Republican, announced earlier this week that he has approved the new route through Nebraska for the Keystone XL pipeline. The pipeline will also run through western South Dakota.

Heineman’s decision more or less clears the way for the U.S. State Department and President Obama to approve the presidential permit required for the project.
