KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE
WASHINGTON — In a setback for the Trump administration, a federal judge has blocked a permit for construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada and ordered officials to conduct a new environmental review. Environmentalists and tribal groups cheered the ruling by a U.S. district judge in Montana, while President Donald Trump called it “a political decision” and “a disgrace.” The pipeline would run from Canada through Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska, where it would connect to an existing pump station. From there, it would continue through Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas to deliver crude to Gulf Coast refineries. By Matthew Daly. AP Photos.
