Arizona Rep. Grijalva Heading to Standing Rock in Solidarity Against DAPL
Natural Resources Committee Ranking Member Raúl M. Grijalva (D-AZ) is well aware of the joint announcement made today by the Department of the Army, the Department of Justice and the Department of the Interior to halt construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. But that announcement is not stopping him from traveling to North Dakota in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
As reported by ICTMN on Friday, the agencies called for “serious discussion on whether there should be nationwide reform with respect to considering tribes’ views on these types of infrastructure projects.”
The agencies also called for a pause to all construction activity within 20 miles east or west of Lake Oahe.
