Dakota Access Pipeline

Editor's note: The Standing Rock Sioux tribe issued a statement that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has decided to not approve an easement allowing the Dakota Access pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe. The announcement comes after months of demonstrations near Cannon Ball, N.D., that have led to arrests and several violent confrontations between law enforcement officers and protesters. A part of the Energy Transfer Partners-owned pipeline was set to run under the lake on the tribe's reservation, and protesters say it will threaten water resources and sacred sites. State officials had argued it was too late to reroute the project. In November, the Obama administration delayed a decision on whether pipeline construction will go forward, adding that it will hold more talks with tribal leaders. In a statement issued Sunday, the Army's Assistant Secretary for Civil Works Jo-Ellen Darcy said she based her decision on a need to explore alternate routes, adding "it's clear that there's more work to do." - Stephanie

Trump appointments and nominations

Editor's note: Politico reports Donald Trump will meet this coming week with Admiral James G. Stavridis and Rex W. Tillerson, the CEO of ExxonMobil, as he expands his short list of candidates for secretary of state, sources say. Trump aide Kellyanne Conway told reporters earlier on Sunday that Trump will interview more candidates for the position, though he already has four people under consideration. Politico also notes Trump’s transition team last week identified former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker and former CIA Director David Petraeus as the top four contenders. We're watching for more information. - Rebecca
