Standing Rock Sioux Tribe responds quickly to Dakota Access legal threat


January 19, 2017

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is responding quickly to the latest legal threat from the wealthy backers of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Ahead of a conference call in federal court, the tribe defended the formal publication of an important notice on Wednesday. The document initiates the process for a long-awaited environmental impact statement, or EIS, of the final portion of the controversial pipeline.

"Dakota Access is clearly concerned that an EIS will seriously jeopardize their proposed project," the tribe said in a statement on Tuesday.
