NPR's Jeff Brady reports in recent years fierce anger over the pipelines, potential impact on tribal land launched high profile protests and clashes with police in North Dakota. The court decision is a big win for the pipelines. Opponents, including the Standing Rock, Sioux Tribe, chairman Mike Faith, says this is an historic day for his tribe and said the pipeline should never have been built. At issue is a stretch that crosses the Missouri River near the tribe's reservation. U. S. District Court Judge James Boasberg says the U. S.

But I our daily look at the world of business and the national inquiry into Australia's scandal plagued financial sector has proposed sweeping changes in an effort to end rampant misconduct in the industry. The Royal commission spent a year investigating wrongdoing by some of the country's biggest institutions, including the charging of fees for no service and sometimes to people who were dead. The BBC's Phil Mercer is in Sydney. So what if they said in the report, they said, quote, a lot given that this report is about a thousand pages long. The Royal commission has made seventy six recommendations, it's referred several financial institutions to corporate regulators for possible criminal charges. Now this relates to the scandal of banks and other institutions charging fees for no service. That's charging customers for services that didn't. Exist and want to live it, including charging fees to customers who had died. There's also reference to potential potential criminal breaches by several banks. And really the commission has savaged the financial industry's culture of greed saying that it was putting prophets and money before people. So this is a scathing report, and it's now up to the government and the industry itself to decide where they go from here. Given how many people are submitted to the commission. What kind of impact has what the commission is saying had in Australia. Well, it all comes down to trust. And that is the fundamental focus of the Australian government. The treasurer is Josh Frieden bird the fragile treasurer. And he said that this is a sector that from today must change in change forever. He said that the government was taking action on those Seventy-six recommendations the government is promising to give more power to financial regulators better protection for consumers and remediation for victims of misconduct to the big banks here in Australia once upon a time, they were untouchable, the financial industry is the biggest industry in Australia, very powerful, very wealthy. But this certainly is an industry that is being shamed. By this report is it likely that the government will attempt to enforce the implementation of all the recommendations by the commission. Well, we don't know that the government's words are that it is taking action on these. Seventy-six recommendations that doesn't mean necessarily that all of them will be implemented or adopted. There is a political slant to this too. We are you a federal election in may. And the government will be mindful of the intense community anger surrounding the activities in the misconduct and the deceit by the banks and other financial enterprises. And also, it will be very careful not to weaken the banks to stabilize the economy Savarese, a balancing act there that the government must really think tap into that community dissatisfaction and anger with the banks, but not weaken an industry that is so vital to the Australian economy.
