WASHINGTON – Institute for Energy Research President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement on the Obama administration’s decision to reject the easement permit for the Dakota Access Pipeline:
“The Obama administration’s decision to strong-arm the Army Corps of Engineers is a violation of the rule of law that will chill investment in safe energy infrastructure. Much worse, it will unnecessarily escalate the tense situation on the ground between law enforcement and the protestors. It is unfortunate that in the sunset of his presidency, Obama chose to inflame rather than heal with this symbolic, but short-lived decision.”
