North Dakota tribe's permit for oil refinery on hold for appeal

Six members of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation of North Dakota are challenging the tribe's oil refinery.

The Environmental Protection Agency issued a permit for the project in October. The tribal members say another environmental impact statement is needed to address air quality issues.

The permit is on hold due to the appeals. The Environmental Appeals Board will review the challenges.
