From the article: "The U.S. State Department is working on its own environmental review of the proposed pipeline, which is expected to be released sometime in the first quarter of 2013."

"In a letter to the State Department explaining his decision, Heineman cited the points made in the state Department of Environmental Quality report, which said the new route avoids the ecologically fragile Sandhills but still crosses portions of the Ogallala Aquifer but that any oil spill “should be localized” and TransCanada would be responsible for any cleanup. He noted construction of the pipeline is expected to create $418 million in economic benefits, according to the $5 million DEQ study, which was largely paid for by TransCanada."
