Does the extension of public comment period for EPA changes to gas and oil practices have any significane for the ruling on Keystone XL Pipeline?

    I’m not sure that there are legally any links between the two, because the EPA’s gas and oil changes are the agency’s decision, and the Keystone XL Pipeline decision will be a Presidential Permit, which means ultimately it’s up to Obama. Public comment on this issue could have an effect on Obama’s decision, but the more activism and public outcry specifically against that pipeline will ultimately have much more to do with that decision than public support of the EPA’s changes to the industry. Also, since the EPA’s proposal doesn’t specifically address pipeline placement, the EPA’s decision should not effect the Keystone XL ruling.
