Native American Tribes File Lawsuit Seeking To Invalidate Keystone XL Pipeline Permit

President Trump, flanked by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross (left), and Energy Secretary Rick Perry (right), in March 2017, announcing the approval of a permit to build the Keystone XL pipeline. On Monday two Native American tribes filed a lawsuit seeking a judge to rescind the permit for the $8 billion project.

The Fort Belknap Indian Community and the Rosebud Sioux Tribe contend there was no effort to study how the 1,200-mile pipeline project will affect their water systems and sacred lands.
