December 4, 2016

WASHINGTON – Today U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell released the following statement in support of the U.S. Army's decision related to the Dakota Access Pipeline:

 

"The thoughtful approach established by the Army today ensures that there will be an in-depth evaluation of alternative routes for the pipeline and a closer look at potential impacts, as envisioned by NEPA. The Army's announcement underscores that tribal rights reserved in treaties and federal law, as well as Nation-to-Nation consultation with tribal leaders, are essential components of the analysis to be undertaken in the environmental impact statement going forward."
