Rescind Executive Order "Expediting Environmental Reviews & Approvals..." #NoDAPL
This petition had 47 supporters
We, the people, ask the President of the United States to rescind the Executive Order "Expediting Environmental Reviews and Approvals For High Priority Infrastructure Projects" and stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Since Trump has not released his tax returns or shown proof that he has divested from his businesses, he has as much as a $1 million stake in the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which is a conflict of interest that violates Article I, Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution.
The Dakota Access Pipeline violates the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), which requires any agency to consider the cultural significance of federally-permitted sites.
The Dakota Access Pipeline also violates the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), which requires any agency to consider the effects on historic properties. The pipeline threatens to pollute the water supply of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe.
The Dakota Access Pipeline, like other oil pipelines, threatens the environment and the economy. According to Earthjustice, "In 2010, a single pipeline spill poured 1,000,000 gallons of toxic bitumen crude oil into the Kalamazoo River in Michigan. The cleanup cost over one billion dollars and significant contamination remains." This can happen with the Dakota Access Pipeline.
We demand this Executive Order be reversed.
