According to USNews.com, the fed’s conclusion preliminarily clears the way for the oil pipeline project. “The report noted the potential for economic development and growth in impoverished communities along the pipeline’s pathway, saying it could produce as many as 42,000 new construction jobs.” President Obama will make the final decision. http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/03/01/17149564-state-department-admits-keystone-environmental-impact-but-says-theres-no-better-way?lite
