The Dakota Access Pipeline is again in front of the Iowa Utilities Board.
Deliberations began Monday in Des Moines reviewing a permit request to build the pipeline, that would diagonally cut across the state of Iowa.

Board members reviewed pros and cons of the pipeline's implementation, including climate change and job creation.

"Rather than consider for each factor separately, does this promote the public convenience and necessity, is it against it, and take them into isolation. I really think that the better approach is to take them all together at the end and decide how much weight each one is entitled to in your deliberations," said the general council for the Iowa Utilities Board.

These meetings will be held for the next three days in Des Moines starting at 1p.m. each day.  If you can't attend you can watch the proceedings on a live streamed.
