Dakota Access Pipeline Set For Completion After Army Engineers' Approval

Cramer said that congress will be made aware of the decision imminently.

Army Corps of Engineers will give the final approval necessary to move forward with the oil pipeline after an order from the acting secretary of the Army. The tribe insists the environmental impact statement should be completed first.

"The law requires that changes in agency positions be backed by new circumstances or new evidence, not simply the President's whim", Archambault said. 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.

Then late Tuesday, Sen.

Mr. Hoeven said he issued his Tuesday press release after speaking with Vice President Mike Pence and Acting Secretary of the Army Robert Speer.

Thousands of demonstrators, including members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, have camped out at the Standing Rock site against the pipeline, leading to intense and at times violent confrontations with law enforcement. "This has been a hard issue for all involved, particularly those who live and work in the area of the protest site, and we need to bring it to a peaceful resolution".

"These initial steps do not mean the easement has been approved", Frost said. The North Dakota Republican cheered the announcement and called Trump "a man of action".

Dump trucks and heavy machinery rolled into the protest camp near the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline on Monday, and crews began filling large dumpsters with garbage that has accumulated, much of it now buried under snow. Army Corps of Engineers has been instructed to sign off on the critical easement under Lake Oahe. But the Army also said that an the easement has not yet been granted. You can mail your comments to Mr. Gib Owen, Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works, 108 Army Pentagon, Washington DC 20310-0108. From its perspective, the order from the Army is not a formal issuance of an easement, but a notice that one is imminent. The tribe vowed to "vigorously pursue legal action" if and when the easement is in fact granted. "I'm not going to take anyone's property or do anything like that", Hans Youngbird Bradley, a construction contractor from the Standing Rock Sioux tribe said during the meeting.
