Army review bring new life to Dakota Access pipeline

The Dakota Access pipeline may finally begin construction under a Missouri River reservoir thanks to a new review ordered by the acting secretary of the United States Army.

The Associated Press:

On Tuesday, the acting secretary of the Army ordered a review of an earlier decision to block the last section of pipeline from being laid under a Missouri River reservoir. The move came just days after President Donald Trump issued a memo calling for reconsideration of the December decision by the Army Corps of Engineers.

Based on a discussion with the Army secretary, Robert Speer, Republican Sen. John Hoeven said Wednesday that there is no doubt in his mind that permission to finish the project will be granted.
