A Lancaster County district judge has refused to block a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Nebraska's new pipeline siting law.
The state requested to dismiss the lawsuit filed by three landowners along the proposed Keystone XL pipeline route.
The lawsuit says the state unlawfully delegated powers to the governor that belong with the Public Service Commission.
It also says the law stemmed from unconstitutional special legislation because it benefited only one entity, TransCanada.
The company's pipeline is designed to carry oil from Canada to Texas through two Siouxland states, South Dakota and Nebraska.
