YORK, Neb. — The York County Board on Tuesday refused to join an effort to oppose the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.
County Board members defeated a symbolic resolution expressing concern about the safety of the 36-inch, high-pressure pipeline, which would transport tar sands oil from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast. Three of the five County Board members voted against the measure.
