(JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.) Governor Jay Nixon voices his support for the proposed Flanagan South Pipeline Project.

It would run approximately 600 miles from Flanagan, Illinois to Cushing, Oklahoma, crossing eleven counties in Missouri.

The total potential investment could be up to one-point-nine billion dollars.

Nixon says the project not only ensures a reliable energy source, but creates construction jobs across Missouri.
