North Dakota borrows $7M more for pipeline protest costs
North Dakota leaders will borrow an additional $7 million to cover the cost of law enforcement related to the ongoing protest of the four-state Dakota Access oil pipeline. The state's Emergency Commission voted Wednesday to borrow the funds from the state-owned Bank of North Dakota.

Pipeline developer Energy Transfer Partners says it made an offer to reimburse the state for policing costs.
