KHRT NEWS - THURSDAY - 062118 - 1800

A U.S. Supreme Court decision that states can force online shoppers to pay sales tax is being hailed by North Dakota officials as a victory for local businesses.
 
     The ruling in a South Dakota case overturns a 1992 decision, Quill v. North Dakota, that said companies can't be forced to collect sales tax from customers in a state where they don't have a physical presence.
 
     North Dakota's tax department estimates the state has been losing out on $50 million a year.
 
     Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger (RAW'-shuhn-bur-gur) says his office will be working "over the next few weeks" to implement the law change.
 
     Remote sellers will be required to collect and remit sales tax to North Dakota if they make a minimum of either 200 sales or $100,000 in sales per year in the state.

 An Air Force base in North Dakota that's been searching for a missing machine gun and some lost military explosives has recovered the weapon.
 
     Officials discovered the M240 machine gun was missing during a routine weapons inventory at Minot Air Force Base on May 16. Air Force special agents recovered it Tuesday at an airman's off-base residence.
 
     The base released no other details, citing an ongoing investigation.
 
     The Minot base also is missing ammunition for an automatic grenade launcher. It fell off a vehicle on an American Indian reservation May 1. Searches failed to turn up any trace of the container.
 
     Col. Jason Beers of the 91st Security Forces Group was removed from command in May due to the incidents. He's now with Air Force Special Operations Command in Florida.

 Supporters seeking to amend the North Dakota constitution to include a sweeping government ethics overhaul say they have turned in more than 38,000 signatures to Secretary of State Al Jaeger.
 
     The initiative billed as an "anti-corruption amendment" would ban foreign money from elections, restrict lobbying and create an independent ethics commission, among other provisions. North Dakota is one of only a handful of states without an ethics commission.
 
     Nearly 27,000 valid signatures are required to put the measure on the November ballot. Proponents say it will allow North Dakotans to find out who is funding political campaigns.
 
     North Dakota Democratic lawmakers have been unsuccessfully pushing for years to establish an ethics commission. The Republican-led Legislature has said it's not needed because lawmakers already follow high standards of conduct.

No one was seriously hurt when a stolen car with five juveniles inside fled from Grand Forks police and crashed.
 
     Authorities say the teens fled when an officer tried to stop the vehicle shortly after 2:30 a.m. Thursday, and the vehicle eventually went off the road and rolled.
 
     The driver then tried to flee on foot but was caught. Charges are pending.
 
     The teens were taken to a hospital with what police say are minor injuries.

A Dickinson man is dead after a head-on crash in Stark County.
 
     The Highway Patrol says the 59-year-old man pulled his pickup truck into the oncoming lane of state Highway 22 to get around a turning semitrailer, and collided head-on with an oncoming semi.
 
     The crash happened shortly after 8 a.m. Wednesday. The pickup driver was declared dead at the scene 6 miles south of Dickinson.
 
     The two people in the semi involved in the crash were treated at a Dickinson hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening.

The small town of Leith that drew international headlines in 2013 when a white supremacist unsuccessfully tried to take it over is on the verge of dissolving.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports some residents are worried that two write-in candidates elected to the town's council might rekindle antagonism.
 
     Mayor Ryan Schock gathered enough petition signatures to prompt a dissolution vote July 23. The 18 people who voted in the city election will decide whether to give up their incorporated status and turn their official affairs over to Grant County.
 
     Schock says he hopes dissolving the town's government will be the end of the Craig Cobb legacy and of the division in Leith.
 
     Cobb recently finished serving four years of probation for terrorizing residents of Leith in 2013. He lives in Sherwood.

New technology will soon be taking internal readings of 15 small pipelines across western North Dakota.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that the Piper is the size of a golf ball and filled with acoustic sensors. The small sphere will be inserted at one end of an underground pipeline and flow along with whatever liquid is being carried, checking for clogs and leaks.
 
     A startup called Ingu Solutions developed the Pipers as part of the Intelligent Pipeline Integrity Program, a research and development grant matching project by the North Dakota Industrial Commission. The three-year program is focused on advancing new pipeline leak prevention technologies.
 
     The program chose Ingu for its unique target market, small gathering pipelines that deliver liquids from remote well sites in the state's western region.
