BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring is asking for public comment on proposed rules on the composition of commercial fertilizers and containment of liquid fertilizers.
 
     Goehring says the proposed rules are based on national standards established by the Association of American Plant Food Control Officials. They're intended to assure consumers and dealers that the products they buy contain the minimum level of nutrients stated on the label.
 
     The requirements for primary containment would cover liquid fertilizer held in undivided quantities greater than 55 gallons.
 
     Requirements for secondary containment affect only fertilizer distributors when liquid fertilizer is held in undivided quantities greater than 2,500 gallons for longer than 30 days.
 
     The deadline for submitting comments is Feb. 13.
 
     A public hearing is scheduled for Feb. 3 at the State Capitol.

Securing passage for a new five-year farm bill tops the to-do list for North Dakota's congressional delegation as it heads into 2014.
 
     House and Senate negotiators hope to have an agreement early next year. But Republican Sen. John Hoeven says his first task will be making sure negotiations don't get off track.
 
     Hoeven is a member of the committee negotiating an agreement.
 
     Democrat Sen. Heidi Heitkamp says she's also focused farm bill. Both Hoeven and Heitkamp say that if the legislation is approved, they will then focus on its implementation and making sure it works for North Dakota's farmers and livestock producers.
 
     Other congressional issues on North Dakota lawmakers' radar include energy legislation and new water projects bill.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Jack Dalrymple has named a 15-member advisory panel on pipeline safety in the wake of a massive spill in western North Dakota.
 
     The group includes state and federal officials, oil and gas industry officials and engineers.
 
     Dalrymple says the panel will provide recommendations for the best technology to monitor and control oil and gas pipeline systems in the state.
 
     The move to review pipeline safety stems from a Sept. 29 oil pipeline rupture that spilled more than 20,000 barrels of oil across several acres of farmland near Tioga.
 
     Officials say the panel's first meeting is tentatively scheduled for Jan. 9.
