The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is seeking public comment on its final Environmental Impact Statement for the Souris River flood protection program in North Dakota.....

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is seeking public comment on its final Environmental Impact Statement for the Souris River flood protection program in North Dakota.
 
     The Minot Daily News reports that the EIS posted Thursday includes the project's overview and focuses on the phases through Minot ready to begin construction. The Souris River Joint Water Resources Board is proposing to alter Minot's current flood reduction project by constructing new levees and flood walls.  
 
     The EIS is one part of the information needed for the Corps' consideration of a Section 408 permit for the flood protection construction. The permit is one of the major components for the project to continue.
 
     The statement is online and at Minot's libraries. Public review and comment for the statement will end in August.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's oil production dropped slightly in May but remained above 1 million barrels per day for the fourth consecutive month. The Department of Mineral Resources says the state produced an average of 1.04 million barrels of oil daily in May, down from 1.05 million barrels in April.
 
     North Dakota also produced 1.85 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day in May, up from 1.83 billion cubic feet daily in April. The May tallies are the latest figures available.
 
     There were 58 drill rigs operating in North Dakota on Friday, up eight from the May average.

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Williston police have a suspect in custody in an early morning homicide. Officers responded to a report of a man being shot shortly before 3 a.m. Friday. Forty-three-year-old Vance Neset was taken to a hospital and later pronounced dead. The suspect initially fled, and police warned the public that the man was considered armed and dangerous. Authorities announced his capture shortly before midday. The 27-year-old man wasn't immediately charged. Local, regional and state law officers are investigating.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A trade group representing pharmacy benefit managers has filed a federal lawsuit challenging two new North Dakota laws that broaden oversight on the managers and require disclosure of some financial information.
 
     The Washington, D.C.-based Pharmaceutical Care Management Association says the laws, which take effect on Aug.1, would increase drug costs and could "threaten patient safety." The suit wants a judge to halt the laws' enforcement.
 
     Pharmacy benefit managers, or PBMs, negotiate with drug makers on behalf of health insurers, employers and unions that cover medications.
 
     Backers of the legislation testified that PBMs lack oversight in North Dakota. The two bills sailed through the Legislature, and Gov. Doug Burgum signed them in April.
 
     A spokeswoman for the North Dakota attorney general's office decline comment on the lawsuit.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Bad weather last winter and drought this summer might combine to put a damper on the fall pheasant hunt in North Dakota. A spring crowing count survey conducted by the state Game and Fish Department indicated the population might be down about 14 percent from a year ago.
 
     Upland game management biologist R.J. Gross says last year's pheasant production was below average, and a rough December and January was hard on birds.
 
     The spring data isn't always a good indicator of what the pheasant population will be in the fall when hunters take to the field. Brood surveys that will begin in a couple of weeks will provide a better indication. But state Wildlife Chief Jeb Williams says extreme drought this summer could have an impact on the pheasant population.
