State Department to Release Records On Keystone Pipeline Conflicts of Interest

On behalf of Friends of the Earth, in July we filed a FOIA suit against the State Department for refusing to release records concerning conflicts of interest associated with the Keystone XL Pipeline approval process (see our July post for details).  In a filing with the Court this week, the State Department agreed to begin releasing records on December 6, and to complete the record review process within 60 days.
