    could be good news:

    WASHINGTON, Jan 22 (Reuters) - The Obama administration has delayed a decision on TransCanada Corp's rerouted Keystone XL oil pipeline until after March, even though Nebraska's governor said on Tuesday he approved a plan for a section of the line.

    "We don't anticipate being able to conclude our own review before the end of the first quarter of this year," said Victoria Nuland, a spokeswoman at the State Department, which had previously said it would make a decision before the end of March.

    IIRC, the last review was conducted by a company that also worked for TransCanada. Perhaps they'll either do it themselves or hire someone without an apparent conflict of interest.
