Dalrymple, Senators John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp, and Congressman Kevin Cramer spoke with officials from the Department of Justice, Department of Interior and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Thursday.
A press release from Sen. Hoeven’s office says the delegation specifically requested the following:
·       Immediate additional federal law enforcement officers to assist local law enforcement in their efforts to keep the peace.
·       Federal funding to cover the cost of additional policing. The state has already spent $1.8 million to date, and estimates it will spend approximately $125,000 a week based on current circumstances.
·       A clear and timely resolution on the Dakota Access Pipeline project, apart from any review of the current process for consulting with tribes in the future.
