According to Trans-Canada, their proposed pipeline route through Nebraska is still good to go.
A spokesman for the company said last week's ruling to strike down the law can't be enforced because the case is on appeal. This means the ruling shouldn't affect the federal project review.
Last week a district judge ruled Governor Heineman's approval of the route was unconstitutional, seemingly sending the pipeline back to square one.
The ruling came after three Nebraska landowners challenged the law that gave Gov. Dave Heineman the authority to allow the TransCanada Keystone XL Pipeline to proceed with construction across Nebraska.
The court found regulatory control over pipeline companies like TransCanada falls to the Nebraska Public Service Commission, not the governor, according to the State Constitution.
