The Governor reaches out to the White House for help as costs associated with the pipeline protests closes in on $2 million.
North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple has asked for federal help to deal with long-running protests.
Dalrymple sent out a statement Tuesday saying he’s asked White House officials as well as three federal agencies to help supply people and money.
He says it’s all in an effort to “maintain public safety.”
He says state costs directly associated with pipeline protests total about $1.8 million.
The Highway Patrol reports about $700,000 in expenses.
Morton County officials reported costs of about $100,000 a week.
In a press release from his office Dalrymple said, “I’m going to hold the federal government to its word, when the Corps and the departments of Interior and Justice delayed a decision on the pipeline’s construction, and offered to deploy resources to North Dakota to help “defuse tensions, support peaceful protest, and maintain public safety.”
