KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE-SOUTH DAKOTA

BISMARCK, N.D. _ South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem says she won’t test an American Indian tribe that has banned her from one of the largest reservations in the country, but she hopes to reverse the directive. The Oglala Sioux is upset with legislation pushed by Noem that aims to quell any protests against the proposed Keystone XL pipeline similar to those in North Dakota that plagued construction of the Dakota Access pipeline. A tribal spokesman says its president would be willing to meet with Noem, though “who will make the first move, that remains to be seen.” By Blake Nicholson. SENT: 130 words. Will be updated.
