N.D. to list 'culturally important' sites for protection from drilling


FARGO -- North Dakota plans to compile a list of "culturally important" places that officials will protect from disturbances from energy development or other impacts.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple and fellow members of the Industrial Commission will visit places this summer for possible inclusion on a list, the governor said.

The effort will complement sites already identified for restrictions or conditions by state Game and Fish, parks and historic preservation officials.
