UPDATE 11:37 a.m.: Trump signed several executive orders Tuesday morning to expedite stalled construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines
He also signed orders intended to streamline the environmental review process and limit regulations on federal construction projects.
ORIGINAL STORY: President Trump will sign executive orders moving forward with the Dakota Access pipeline and the Keystone XL pipeline, NBC News reports.
The Dakota Access pipeline sparked months of protest that culminated in the announcement that the pipeline would be rerouted. It is not clear if Trump will return to the former route or propose a new one.
The Keystone XL pipeline's construction had also been halted under former President Obama's administration.
Press secretary Sean Spicer reiterated Trump's support for the pipelines in his press briefing on Monday.
The Dakota Access pipeline has been stalled while the Army Corps of Engineers carries out a study to decide whether or not to let the pipeline cross the Missouri River in North Dakota. The Standing Rock Sioux say the original route will contaminate their water supply.
Protests have flared up again at Standing Rock in recent weeks. The Independent reports 27 people were arrested last week, and police used tear gas, pepper spray and rubber bullets on protesters.
At one point, an unarmed missile launcher was spotted near the protest sites.
