North Dakota is 38 million dollars in the red from the DAPL protests. Although it took place almost 2 years ago, the state is still working to pay it off.

Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says he sent a claim to the federal government, asking for a full reimbursement to pay for the protests. The claim was made under the federal torte claims act.
He says the blame for the high costs fall on one entity in particular. 

Wayne Stenehjem; Attorney General: “They totally ignored their responsibility. As a result of which, we incurred, in North Dakota, expenses of 38 millions dollars. The tax payers of ND ought not to be required to to bear that burden when it’s the corps of engineers who are directly responsible for that expense.”

Stenehjem says the government has 6 months to approve or deny the claim. If it’s denied, he’ll sue the Army Corps of Engineers in federal district court.
