BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – A legislative committee will review an emergency request to borrow more money from the Bank of North Dakota to cover the cost of law enforcement related to the protest of the Dakota Access oil pipeline.

The state’s Emergency Commission, headed by Gov. Jack Dalrymple, will vote Tuesday on whether to borrow $4 million from the state-owned bank.

The panel borrowed $6 million from the bank in September and officials say that money already has been used to cover law enforcement costs.

North Dakota officials have asked federal officials to reimburse the state for the additional law enforcement costs.
