​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.
