‘Inappropriately Cozy’ U.S. Ties on Keystone, Group Says

The State Department withheld information on internal discussions about TransCanada Corp.’s proposed Keystone XL pipeline across six U.S. states, according to an environmental group.

The department “heavily redacted” or withheld internal e-mails on discussions over the $7 billion project that were requested under the Freedom of Information Act, according to Friends of the Earth in Washington. Documents that have been released demonstrate “inappropriately cozy” relationships between department officials and TransCanada, the group said.
