BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — An appeals court is refusing to stop the imminent flow of oil through the Dakota Access pipeline. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit today denied a request from the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux tribes for an emergency order. That means the $3.8 billion pipeline to move North Dakota oil to Illinois could be operating as early as Monday. The tribes are afraid it could harm their water supply.

Eric Holcomb says his state is working on finding funding for water filters in East Chicago homes dealing with lead contamination and he's extending a state disaster declaration covering the problem for an additional 30 days.
