BREAKING: Inspector General will investigate Keystone XL #nokxl

According to a memo posted by the Natural Resources Defense Council, the State Department's inspector general will conduct an investigation into the Keystone XL permitting process. Fourteen members of Congress requested an audit two weeks ago, citing irregularities in the environmental review for the pipeline. Just to recap: At TransCanada's suggestion, the State Department hired environmental contractor Cardno Entrix to conduct the environmental review. But Cardno Entrix considers TransCanada a "major client ," which means they are ... maybe not the most objective choice? But never fear, the inspector general will get to the bottom of this. Apparently the review "will include interviews of appropriate officials and an assessment of pertinent documents"! We're on the edge of our seats!
