Recently a federal court ordered the Dakota Access Pipeline shut down. That line carries nearly half of all of North Dakota’s oil output. The oil industry pays more than half of all the tax collected by the State of North Dakota.
The North Dakota Democratic Party didn’t issue a statement about that, but they had plenty of time to try and dunk on Gov. Doug Burgum because his company, like thousands of others in the state, took a small loan to keep some workers on the payroll in an uncertain time.
