U.S. Chamber Of Commerce Rightfully Supports Keystone XL

It’s difficult to understand why people, most especially politicians, let a lack of common sense get in the way of a good thing.
 During the final leg of a tour of the proposed route of the Keystone XL Pipeline on Friday, members of the United states Chamber of Commerce rightfully expressed their frustration at a lack of movement on the project. Matt Koch, vice-president for the U.S. Chamber said it all boils down to this Fall’s election.
 He said that everyone wants to be perceived as being on the “winning side” when a final ruling is issued. No one wants to put their jobs at risk.
 Now isn’t that a sad state of affairs?

State water law history shifts toward local regulation

Having enough water is an increasingly important issue for Nebraska farmers and city dwellers alike, but regulating water use is not something new for state policymakers.Nebraska has a long history of water law, and with the complex interplay of water rights, recent droughts and continued legal pressure from Kansas over the Republican River, state water laws have gone through many changes, with an increased emphasis on local control of water management.
