Bold Nebraska is best known for our work with an unlikely alliance of farmers, ranchers, Tribal Nations and citizens to stop the risky Keystone XL pipeline. We work on issues including eminent domain, clean energy, small family farms and lifting up small businesses who represent the Good Life with our Made in the Neb project. You can find us in the streets, corn fields and in the State Capitol standing up for property rights and standing with citizens as we work to protect the land, water and climate.
Iowa’s political landscape is dominated by extreme ideas and policies that protect big business and special interests. We need leaders and ideas that instead focus on protecting our families, our land, our water and our liberty. We, the people of Iowa, deserve and demand better. We owe it to our founders and to future generations. We owe it to our fertile fields and life-giving waters.
Bold Oklahoma works to bring together an unlikely alliance of farmers, ranchers, Tribal Nations, urban and rural communities. Oklahoma is a state of diverse culture, home to 39 Sovereign Nations of Native American Tribes, as well as farmers, ranchers — and Big Oil industry giants. The environmental impacts of the fossil fuel industry have infringed on the lands of the Sovereign Nations as well as farmers and ranchers in our communities.
Bold Louisiana fights in a state where government has been hijacked by corporate carpetbaggers and lobbyists who have side-tracked the best interests of the people to support their own self-serving ideals. Our goals are diversifying economic development for our state, creating a real plan to confront climate change, and ensuring a just transition to renewable energy sources and jobs.

On Jan. 24, President Trump took action to undo President Obama’s rejection of Keystone XL, opening the door for TransCanada to reapply to build the risky tarsands export pipeline that would pass through the fragile Sandhills and Ogallala aquifer in Nebraska.  But Trump’s action is far from a “green-light” to begin construction on Keystone […]
On Feb. 16, 2017, TransCanada submitted a new application with the Nebraska Public Service Commission for a route for its proposed Keystone XL pipeline project.

The President can do two things to remove certain obstacles to the permitting of the the Keystone XL tarsands pipeline, if TransCanada reapplies. First, he can rescind Executive Order 11423 governing transboundary pipelines, eliminating the need for a National Interest Determination and review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Even without that step, second […]
