Yes, private concerns cannot build a pipeline that crosses our national border without approval from the USG. It falls within the realm of diplomacy.

The State Department is doing its own evionmental impact statement along the entire route of the pipeline. The Nebraska portion has always been the most controversial and the reason for the State Department's involvement environmentally. Environmental groups have been challenging the route for the get-go.

As far as crossing the border is concerned, what good is the pipeline if you can't connect it to the source of oil in Canada? Why do you think TransCanada is building it?
