North Dakota borrowing $6 million to handle protests of Dallas-based ETP's pipeline

 


BISMARCK, N.D. -- A North Dakota legislative committee has approved an emergency request to borrow $6 million to cover the cost of law enforcement related to the ongoing protest of the four-state Dakota Access oil pipeline from Dallas' Energy Transfer Partners.

The state's Emergency Commission, headed by Gov. Jack Dalrymple, voted Wednesday to borrow the funds from the state-owned Bank of North Dakota.

The leader of the state's National Guard says North Dakota has spent about $1.8 million to date on law enforcement and other costs related to the protests, centered in south-central North Dakota.
