First Of Two Pipeline Hearings Held

LINCOLN (AP) - It was a lively meeting in Lincoln pitting business and union representatives against environmentalists in a debate over the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. Critics say the Canadian oil pipeline could foul a source of drinking water for about 2 million people. But supporters say it'll lead to thousands of jobs. The State Department is hosting several meetings in the affected states. The next is Thursday in Atkinson.
