Trump Administration Pushes For Dakota Access Pipeline To Move Forward03:38
It's been a year since the North Dakota Access Pipeline broke ground, a year that brought thousands of people together in opposition to that project. The move follows a memo from President Donald Trump on January 24 directing that the agency expedite reviews and approvals for the project, which was proposed to carry Bakken crude 1,172 miles across four states to IL, where it can more readily access refineries that handle light sweet crude. An agency official did immediately reply to a request for comment on Tuesday.
The Standing Sioux Rock tribe, the group at the center of the standoff over the pipeline, said it was disappointed, but not surprised, by the decision. "I'm going to stay involved as far as staying informed, reading constantly try to listen to the voices that need to be heard the most", Emily Handy, a graduate student studying English at United Kingdom, said.
According to Hoeven's statement, the easement will be issued.
The Republican senator said in a statement late Tuesday that during a meeting with Vice President Mike Pence and Acting Secretary of the Army Robert Speer, Speer said he directed the Army Corps "to proceed with the easement needed to complete the Dakota Access Pipeline".

They've cited concerns that the pipeline could traverse through ancestral Native American lands, violate the rights of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, contaminate their water supply and pose other safety hazards. It has vowed to fight on, in the courts.
Shortly after Trump's order, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe said his move to revive the construction of the oil project was meant as political payback to the billionaires benefiting from the project who supported his bid for the presidency. The pipelines would be placed under the Missouri River, which serves as a primary source of drinking water for almost 10,000 people in the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Do you agree with Donald Trump's decision to allow the project to be completed along its original route? They warn it could leak and pollute water, although developer Energy Transfer Partners says the pipeline would be safe.
Within the final days of President Obama's administration, Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works Jo-Ellen Darcy announced on December 4 that an easement would not be granted for the pipeline to cross under the large reservoir on the Missouri River, just upstream of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe reservation. It's complete except for a stretch under Lake Oahe in southern North Dakota.
