Nebraska law that allowed Keystone XL struck down

LINCOLN, Nebraska (AP) — A Nebraska judge on Wednesday struck down a law that allowed the Keystone XL oil pipeline to proceed through the state, a victory for opponents who have tried to block the project to carry oil from Canada to Texas refineries.

The ruling could cause more delays in finishing the pipeline.

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