Most North Dakotans believe the development of our energy resources has been good for our state. Oil, coal, wind and natural gas, along with our booming agricultural sector, and the best work force in America, have combined to make us the envy of the nation. Our entire state has prospered, but with every opportunity comes challenges. One challenge is public safety, as it relates to the transportation and delivery of oil. Currently, we do not have adequate pipeline capacity, a situation that is exacerbated by the refusal of the Administration to approve the Keystone XL pipeline.
