The governor of the State of Nebraska has approved the changed route, along time ago. It is that lying sack of garbage in the WH and his stooge in the State Department that is keeping the project from creating jobs. Of course, the last thing you Democrats want is job creation. After all, the more people you impoverish and make dependent on government are parasites who will vote for party.
He has not said no. He has, because of the fanatical, extremist leftwing radicals of his party, kept delaying fearing they won't contribute to or vote for Democrats next election. So he continues to spit on our ally to the north. Democrats would rather see massive pollution from train wrecks carrying the oil. Of course since Buffet is a big donor to the Democrats, and he owns a large stake in one of the railroads that carries that oil, well, you get the idea.
