Dakotas Lawmakers Tour ND Oil Patch

August 30, 2012, 12:42 PM

Dakotas Lawmakers Tour ND Oil Patch
WILLISTON, ND -

More than two dozen lawmakers from the Dakotas are touring North Dakota's oil patch this week to get a firsthand look at the boom and its impact on the area.

Lawmakers were bused to drilling rig and oil well sites and spent the night near Williston in a crew camp. They also got an earful from local officials looking for help with millions of dollars in infrastructure needs.

Williston Mayor Ward Koeser told lawmakers Thursday that the city's population has probably doubled in the past decade with the oil boom. He says the city has more than a half billion dollars in immediate infrastructure needs.

Koeser says he and other leaders in the region will be aggressively asking for help from the Legislature.
