Lincoln, Nebraska (AP) — Opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline are calling on Nebraska regulators to revoke the easement granted to the company across private land as the project has been officially abolished.

Bold Nebraska and Nebraska Ponca lawyers wrote a request to the Nebraska Public Services Commission in 2017, which approved the proposed route for the pipeline.

Lawyers Ken Winston and Brad Jolly say the Commission is obliged to protect the ownership of the threatened landowner as long as the approval of the route is valid.

Lawyers say the current situation at developer TC Energy limits the ability of landowners to use and develop their assets, negatively impacting their economic viability.
