Hold that Tiger Swan
The state board in charge of such things has denied Tiger Swan, the para-military security firm hired to spy on NODAPL protesters, a permit to operate in Louisiana. This sounds like good news but nobody should expect this means they or some similar outfit won't be here. Governor Edwards recently signed Louisiana onto an agreement that might actually circumvent the permitting process under certain circumstances. Also the Governor received $5,000 in contributions from Energy Transfer Partners during the last election.
