Judge's decision could delay Keystone XL pipeline project

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) A judge has struck down a Nebraska law that allowed the Keystone XL oil pipeline to proceed through the state.

Lancaster County Judge Stephanie Stacy issued a ruling today that invalidated Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman's approval of the route.

Stacy says the decision should have been made by the Nebraska Public Service Commission, which regulates pipelines and other utilities.

The ruling could further delay the project.
