Army Secretary Just Responded To Trump’s Pipeline Order, Liberals Are NOT Going To Like It

The construction easement needed to build a piece of the Dakota Access pipeline has been ordered by the acting secretary of the Army, per The Hill.

The order had not yet been issued as of last night, however North Dakota congressional delegation said federal officials had received orders to proceed.

Check it out:

“The Acting Secretary of the Army Robert Speer informed us that he has directed the Army Corps of Engineers to proceed with the easement needed to complete the Dakota Access Pipeline,” Sen. John Hoeven (R-N.D.) said in a Tuesday night statement.

“This will enable the company to complete the project, which can and will be built with the necessary safety features to protect the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and others downstream.”

According to the Senator, the Army Secretary’s order means that construction will officially move forward on the pipeline.

This news will inevitably bring mixed reactions from North Dakotans, as the pipeline has been a contentious issue for some time.

The pipeline has been especially controversial amongst members of the Sioux Tribe, as there are concerns that water and some religious sites will be affected.

The tribe… protested against it and brought a lawsuit to block it last year. The Army Corps approved but never issued the easement under President Barack Obama, and in November administration officials said they would not issue the easement and instead conduct an environmental impact assessment of the line. That process could delay the project for years.

In a statement, the Standing Rock Sioux contended the Army Corps can’t stop the environmental review and issue the easement without consulting Congress or the tribe first.

“The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe will vigorously pursue legal action to ensure the environmental impact statement order issued late last year is followed so the pipeline process is legal, fair and accurate,” the statement said.

So while it appears construction will proceed, it will not do so without it’s share of obstacles.
