Trump administration asks Supreme Court to move Keystone XL pipeline forward

The Trump administration is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a federal judge’s decision and grant a key permit to allow the Keystone XL pipeline to move forward.

If the high court sides with the administration, it could open the door for Canadian developer TC Energy to move forward with construction of the pipeline, which runs partly through eastern Montana, while other legal issues are decided by appellate judges.
