The Nebraska Pipeline Association is a collaborative association, formed in 2007, whose 13 Nebraska pipeline operator members focus on sharing positive and proactive pipeline safety information with local emergency responders and public officials.

Led by former Home Depot Inc. chief executive Annette Verschuren, NRStor announced Monday a partnership with Labourers’ Pension Fund of Central and Eastern Canada (LiUNA), a multi-employer fund with $5.7-billion in assets under management.

The association sponsors free, interactive pipeline safety awareness programs to local emergency responders and public officials in 18 separate meetings statewide.

The 350-mile pipeline is a nearly $4.2 billion investment into Pennsylvania's economy and a tremendous benefit for the thousands of lives it will impact along its journey to completion, not the least of whom are the 7,000 construction workers, many of them LiUNA members, who will work to build the pipeline.

Something largely lost in the media flurry over President Trump’s executive orders was the Republican Congress’s unravelling of notable fossil fuel regulations.

The irony of their actions is that, in tampering with the valves at all, the activists created the potential for environmental catastrophe anywhere along the pipelines they shut down.
