Hoeven denies Ducks Unlimited land buy
BISMARCK (AP) -- Gov. John Hoeven has denied a proposed 598-acre Ducks Unlimited land buy in Kidder County.
His decision follows the recommendation of the Kidder County Commission and the Natural Areas Acquisition Advisory Committee, which advises the governor on land purchases by nonprofits.
Ducks Unlimited says Hoeven's decision does not respect private property rights. The group had wanted to buy the land from a private owner.
