Drought conditions in North Dakota haven't changed much over the past week....

     BISMARCK , N.D. (AP) - Drought conditions in North Dakota haven't changed much over the past week. The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows 82 percent of the state in some stage of drought, up slightly from 79 percent last week. Most of central and western North Dakota remains in extreme or exceptional drought, the two worst categories.

    Gov. Doug Burgum and Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring are hosting a public drought meeting in Mott on Monday.

    The federal government has declared numerous North Dakota counties to be disaster areas, and Burgum last week also declared a drought disaster. That has opened to door to various forms of aid, such as emergency loans and haying and grazing of conservation land.

    North Dakota Farmers Union on Thursday called for federal disaster payments for drought-impacted farmers and ranchers.

     SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota has been paid for its help policing protests in North Dakota against the Dakota Access oil pipeline. South Dakota Highway Patrol troopers racked up 8,800 hours during the protests. Spokesman Tony Mangan tells the Argus Leader that the agency has been reimbursed $518,000 for hours and mileage.
 
     American Indian tribes and environmental groups protested the pipeline because they fear environmental harm, a claim Texas-based pipeline developer Energy Transfer Partners rejects. There were 761 arrests in North Dakota between August and February.
 
     The $3.8 billion pipeline began moving North Dakota oil to a distribution point in Illinois last month.

     The Devils Lake Journal reports that some people in the area are concerned about property values and environmental problems, while others see a potential boost to the economy. The department says in a statement that it will hold a public meeting at some point on the environmental permitting process. The time, date and location haven't been decided yet.
