BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - The U.S. Supreme Court handed another setback today to the Keystone XL pipeline that’s under construction on the Canada Montana border.

Construction stopped in April when a lower court blocked a key environmental permit which TC Energy needs to continue building the pipeline along rivers and streams, a decision Monday’s Supreme Court ruling keeps in tact.

The case now returns to the u.s. 9th circuit court of appeals.
