The State Department will hold a final public hearing on the tar sands Keystone XL pipeline this Friday, October 7th in Washington, D.C.

The State Department, which issued a review in August that stated the agency’s belief that the project would have “minor” impacts, has yet announce a decision on whether it will deny or grant a permit to TransCanada to build the tar sands pipeline.  Friday’s hearing is the last of several held by the State Department across the country to assess public concerns regarding the pipeline‘s development, and it’s an important opportunity to stress to President Obama that this project is an environmental disaster waiting to happen.

In addition to the LCV’s Alex Taurel testifying at the hearing, the League and the Sierra Club will be hosting a rally at noon on Friday outside the event.

Details are as follows:

  • When: Friday, October 7th 10:00 am – 2pm (Rally will be held at noon)
  • Where: Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center, Atrium Hall, 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C. 20004
