Emergency Commission to consider an additional $4 million to help law enforcement efforts in Morton County
The North Dakota Emergency Commission will meet Tuesday to address the costs of law enforcement efforts related to the Dakota Access Pipeline Protests.
A spokesperson for Gov. Jack Dalrymple's office says the commission will consider authorizing an additional $4 million to help with law enforcement efforts.
The state has almost used up the $6 million the commission authorized in September.
To cover those costs, the state borrowed funds from the Bank of North Dakota and asked for federal help.
