Bismarck, ND – State officials are still trying to figure out how to recoup millions of dollars spent in response to protests at the Dakota Access Pipeline.

As of March 7th, protests at DAPL have cost the state more than $38 million. The state continues to spend its own money despite an on-going offer from Energy Transfer Partners to cover all of the costs. Late last year, ETP said it would reimburse the state for all of the added state expenses like security and clean-up at the protest sites.

KX News called Governor Doug Burgum’s office to find out if it planned to take the offer from ETP. Gov. Burgum’s spokesman Mike Nowatzki said all options are still on the table, including reimbursement from the Army Corp of Engineers.
