Keystone XL: Another year, another delay for frustrated pipeline workers
Ron Berringer's phone is ringing off the hook as his fellow pipeline workers demand to know what the latest Keystone XL delay might mean for their livelihoods.
Berringer, a local union leader in Nebraska, says he's taken more than 30 calls since the Obama administration's decision Friday to again delay a decision on the controversial cross-border pipeline project.
He says workers are concerned that they might be unemployed this summer and fear falling behind in their bill payments.
Berringer says he doesn't know what to tell people.
He says he's angry at the U.S. government, and at those in Nebraska who are strenuously fighting the plan to link Alberta oilsands operations with Gulf Coast refineries.
The U.S. State Department says it can't approve the project for now, because there's a legal dispute in Nebraska over the current route.
