U.S. Army to grant final permit for controversial Dakota pipeline -court filing

Source: Reuters

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will grant the final easement needed to finish the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline, according to a court filing Tuesday.

The line had been delayed for several months after protests from Native American tribes and climate activists. The $3.8 billion line, which is being built by Energy Transfer Partners (ETP.N), needed a final permit to tunnel under Lake Oahe, a reservoir that is part of the Missouri River.

The Standing Rock Sioux tribe, whose reservation is adjacent to the line's route, has said they will fight the decision. The Army Corps had previously stated that they would undertake further environmental review of the project. The tribe was not immediately available for comment.

The Army informed the chairs and ranking members of the House Natural Resources and Senate Energy & Natural Resources committees of their intent in a letter on Tuesday.

........President Donald Trump, days after being sworn in, issued an executive order directing the U.S. Army Corps to smooth the path to finishing the line. Tuesday's filing was made in U.S. District Court in Washington D.C.

Shares of Energy Transfer Partners were down before the news. The stock finished up 20 cents to $39.60 a share.

2. The next/last phase of genocide for Native Americans.

They are counting on us to defend our water (everyone's water) to our dying breath.

8. Which tribe?

There are many tribal nations who support the Lakota Nation. I have read that one or two of them have been bought, but every political movement has their traitors.

3. Please let there be lawsuits.

The Corps of Engineers is derelict in its duty to the Clean Water Act.

6. will the veterans stand with the tribe to block the line?

Since it was an EO directing the Corps, I would think the Corps would have to comply?

How can the Con be stopped from harming our country? It's like he's a domestic terrorist.....am I alone in feeling this way?
