MAIN Coalition Issues Statement on Judge Boasberg’s Decision

MAIN Coalition spokesperson Craig Stevens issued the following statement after Judge Boasberg issued a ruling on the Temporary Restraining Order:

“The MAIN coalition is pleased with Judge Boasberg’s decision that will allow the ongoing construction of the federally permitted Dakota Access pipeline west of Lake Oahe and we remain hopeful that his pending ruling on the injunction will ultimately allow progress to continue.  We agree with the Army Corps of Engineers that safety must be the top priority; and the pipeline, once completed, will be among the safest, most technologically advanced pipelines ever constructed and bring much needed energy to communities across the country.”
