Commission looks at tweaking ‘extraordinary’ plan
Members of the North Dakota Industrial Commission discussed ways to tweak a proposal that would designate state landmarks as worthy of special protection, including hiring a “site analyst.”
During a special meeting in the Pioneer Room of the state Capitol the three-member commission moved to have attorneys review the policy and add the changes discussed. The commission’s next regular meeting is Wednesday.
One of the most significant amendments was suggested by Gov. Jack Dalrymple: hiring or contracting what he called a site analyst. That person would gather comments and validate concerns raised by stakeholders and citizens on proposals to drill in sensitive areas.
