Frustrated ND governor says Dakota Access pipeline delay serves 'no purpose'


MANDAN, N.D. - Gov. Jack Dalrymple expressed frustration Friday, Nov. 18, at the federal government’s inaction on the Dakota Access Pipeline and said he’s continuing to push the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to resolve the situation.

“The frustration is that delaying has no purpose. It does no good whatsoever. We continue to make that argument to the federal government,” Dalrymple said. “We are hopeful that they will at some point realize that in order to resolve this situation in total, we have to have a decision on the easement.”

A news conference hosted by Dalrymple and law enforcement officials Friday came after protests escalated this week in Bismarck and Mandan and a day after a state legislator posted a video plea asking for leaders to be more visible about their efforts to resolve the protests.
