Pipeline Opponents Arranging Training Session in York


YORK, Neb. (AP) -- An anti-pipeline group and some local landowners are setting up training sessions in York that will focus on zoning, spills and emergency response plans.

The session is scheduled to be held between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Aug. 23 at the York City Auditorium.

Jane Kleeb is director of Bold Nebraska, which opposes the proposed Keystone XL pipeline that would carry Canadian oil through Nebraska and other states to Texas refineries.

Kleeb will open the training by reviewing regulations and resolutions that already have been passed in other jurisdictions as well as some that have not been adopted.
