Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt is coming to North Dakota next week....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt is coming to North Dakota next week. Gov.

Later that day, he is set to tour the Energy and Environmental Research Center at the University of North Dakota and hold a round table on energy.
 
     In May, with Pruitt's approval, North Dakota became the first state in the nation to apply for and receive regulatory authority over carbon dioxide capture and storage.
 
     Burgum says he's excited for the opportunity to host Pruitt and highlight North Dakota issues and priorities.

The committee on Wednesday began examining the impact of refugees on such things as the workforce, government services, law enforcement, schools and health care.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Several North Dakota residents are asking for more information about a mobile oilfield waste treatment plant that's proposed in the Bakken formation. The Bismarck Tribune reports the North Dakota Department of Health will hold a public hearing Thursday to discuss White Wing Limited's application for a radioactive materials license.
 
     White Wing Limited is proposing to process, filter and separate oilfield waste with naturally occurring radioactive material. The company doesn't plan to collect or store oilfield waste, but immediately would dispose it at a special landfill. Company officials say they expect the plant mainly to operate in McKenzie, Dunn, Williams and Mountrail counties.
 
     The Dunn County Commission and about a dozen citizens have submitted letters to the health department that raise questions about the proposal.
