Biden administration stands behind federal permits for Line 3

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on Thursday reaffirmed its support of permits for Enbridge's controversial Line 3 oil pipeline across northern Minnesota.

President Joe Biden's administration has signaled it has no intention of yanking federal permits for Enbridge's controversial Line 3 pipeline - despite pleas to do so by environmental groups and two Indian bands.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers continued defending the water permit it granted Enbridge in November in a federal court filing late Wednesday night. The permit was the last major approval the company needed to begin construction on its 340-mile pipeline across northern Minnesota.

The filing marks the first time President Joe Biden's administration has taken a positionon the $3 billion-plus Line 3, which will transport particularly thick oil from western Canada to Enbridge's terminal in Superior, Wis. Several environmental organizations voiced their displeasure Thursday.
