BOONE, Iowa (AP) - A regulatory board overseeing the potential approval of an oil pipeline across Iowa has established a sign-up process for people who want to comment on the project at an upcoming hearing.

The Iowa Utilities Board says people should contact their offices Thursday or Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to alert officials of any intention to speak at a Nov. 12 public hearing in Boone. Time will be allotted for a little over 200 people to speak at a maximum of two minutes each.

The hearing at the Boone County Fairgrounds is expected to last several hours. Unscheduled speakers may speak at the end if there’s time.

The pipeline would transfer crude oil through 18 Iowa counties and parts of North Dakota, South Dakota and Illinois.
