SHOW TRANSCRIPT

A court hearing today could decide the fate of the highly contested Dakota Access Pipeline.

A decision by federal regulators could result in a monthslong shutdown of the line as the Biden Administration performs an environmental review.

The pipeline ships hundreds of thousands of barrels of North Dakota's crude oil to the Midwest and Gulf Coast.

There are concerns of how carbon emissions from the line affect minority communities and the environment.
