"Extraordinary Places" Vote Postponed Until Next Meeting

Posted:

The North Dakota Industrial Commission wants more public input before it makes a decision on the 'extraordinary places' proposal.

If passed it would protect some of North Dakota's special places and add requirements to the oil drilling permit process.

Governor Jack Dalrymple says he's received nearly 400 comments in the past two weeks about the proposal.

He and Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem think they need more time to collect information and to help clarify the proposal.

"This has to do with us dealing with what is always a thorny situation. Where are we actually going to put a rig and what can we do to minimize any impact. That's really all this has to do with," says Wayne Stenehjem.

The commissioners voted to allow public comment until the end of February.

Copies of the proposal and a simplified fact sheet are available on the commission website.
