TD Securities is directly financing $365 million toward the construction of the DAPL and, additionally, the oil and gas infrastructure projects of one of the pipeline's joint owners, Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners.

It's not just Canada's Big Banks that have gotten involved at Standing Rock.

Most Americans live far from the path of the Dakota Access pipeline—they won’t be able to visit the encampments on the Standing Rock Sioux reservation where representatives of more than 200 tribes have come together in the most dramatic show of force of this environmental moment. They won’t be able to participate in the daily nonviolent battle along the Missouri River against a $3.7 billion infrastructure project that threatens precious water and myriad sacred sites, not to mention the planet’s unraveling climate. But most of us live near a bank. Virtually every name in the financial pantheon has extended credit in some form to the Dakota pipeline project.

Standing Rock activists eye pipeline finances to cement Dakota Access win. Indigenous activists are focussing on the Dakota Access pipeline’s finances before Donald Trump takes office in an effort to further strain the oil corporation and cause continuing delays that they hope could be disastrous for the project.

Following the money in state politics can be overwhelming at best, and impossible at worst. Fortunately, political reporters, academics and citizens don’t have to start from scratch. Instead, they can search and click their way through 54 million campaign finance records meticulously gathered and filed by Edwin Bender and his team at the National Institute on Money in State Politics. NIMSP began nearly 25 years ago as a MacArthur-funded one-year project focused on the Northwest states. In that first year, a two-person staff digitized reams of campaign finance reports, which they distributed to reporters via fax and disk.

Six years and multiple project extensions later, Bender says they looked at the blossoming Internet and “understood that we had the potential to be a national organization.” I talked with Bender about the ever-expanding NIMSP, whose data is frequently cited in reporting by nationwide and local media, as well as by grassroots organizers and activists. Briefing: Dakota Access's Massive SubsidiesOil Change International. Oil Change International September 2016 The Dakota Access Pipeline has faced strong resistance from Native Americans, farmers, and ranchers along the proposed pipeline route. It’s also energized the broader climate movement and raised critical questions of protecting clean water, respecting native sovereignty, and rethinking eminent domain for private gain. This briefing brings to light another egregious aspect of the whole affair – the fact that U.S. taxpayers and ratepayers are heavily subsidizing the primary owners of the Dakota Access Pipeline project, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars each year.

CLAIM FOR MOTOR VEHICLE FUEL TAX REFUND BY NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBAL AGENCY 2016. Tribes, North Dakota fail to reach deal on oil tax agreement. James Macpherson | The Associated Press BISMARCK, N.D. — Tribal officials on North Dakota’s oil-rich Fort Berthold Reservation said Thursday they won’t sign off on a revenue sharing agreement with the state because of a new law that shaves the overall oil tax rate following the fall in crude prices. The Legislature in April passed the measure, which also abolishes some price-based incentives.

Three Affiliated Tribes officials said they’re not happy with the tax cut because more money is needed to pay for oversight, road repairs and other consequences of oil development. Tribal leaders have threatened since the law was passed to pull out of the oil tax revenue-sharing agreement that has raised more than $1.5 billion for the state and the tribes since 2008.
