Governor Addresses Oil Industry Impact

Posted: Updated:

It's no surprise that western North Dakota is growing and with that growth brings new challenges for those communities.

Governor Jack Dalrymple says he is working with officials in the oil patch to address needs that have come up since the last session ended in April. Right now, he says the plan is to figure out ways to address these concerns with existing resources. But, he isn't completely against the idea of a special session at some point, if needed.

"We will see if these are things that we can handle in other ways. Possibly by just accelerating the funding to a time frame of say a year from now. But, you know, I would not rule out any possibility," says Dalrymple.

During the last session $2.5 billion were appropriated by the legislature to address impacts to the oil patch.
