(Bismarck, ND) -- A decision on the operation of the Dakota Access Pipeline is drawing closer. A judge is set to decide today on whether the pipeline can continue to operate while the Army Corps of Engineers conducts another environmental review. The issue was originally set to be decided in February. The Biden administration signaled its approach to energy policy when it shutdown the Keystone XL Pipeline immediately after the president took office. Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Chairman Mike Faith said in a statement yesterday that the "original permit was unlawful and DAPL is now operating illegally."
