The long wait for a decision on the Keystone XL pipeline grew even longer Friday, when the U.S. State Department announced it would allow more time for eight federal agencies to submit their views on the proposed project.
 
The State Department said additional time was needed because of ongoing litigation in the Nebraska Supreme Court that leaves uncertainty over the pipeline's route.
