LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska landowners and activists who fought for years to stop the Keystone XL pipeline say they aren’t done advocating on issues related to the project.

Omaha attorney Dave Domina said Friday that landowners will continue their court challenge of a law that allowed former Gov. Dave Heineman to approve a pipeline route in 2013.

Jane Kleeb of Bold Nebraska says her group will pressure pipeline developer TransCanada to return the land easements from property owners along the route. The group also plans to push for new protections against eminent domain, and to advocate for a state Clean Power Plan that emphasizes renewable energy.

Susan Dunavan, a landowner from York, says she’s relieved by the decision but still concerned that TransCanada might try to reapply under a supportive Republican president.
