MONTAGNE: Nebraska's governor has approved a new plan for where the controversial Keystone XL pipeline will pass through his state. In 2011, the governor opposed the pipeline for its potential environmental impact.

It now falls to the Obama administration to approve the project. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
