Bishop on Dakota Access Pipeline Easement


WASHINGTON, D.C., February 7, 2017 -

Today, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced their intent to grant the necessary easement to finish building the Dakota Access pipeline. Chairman Rob Bishop released the following statement:  

“With this approval, we can officially say goodbye to infrastructure approvals being subject to political impulse. With the Trump administration, we are returning to a time when an environmentally sound project is approved by experts that it actually goes forward. This is a win for future investment, American jobs and the rule of law.”
