OIL PIPELINE-PROTESTER INJURY
BISMARCK, N.D — A New York City woman who suffered a severe arm injury protesting the Dakota Access oil pipeline in North Dakota two years ago is suing law enforcement even though she does not yet have evidence that might help her prove law officers were to blame. Sophia Wilansky earlier this year unsuccessfully sued the federal government to get access to shrapnel and clothing taken from her while she was hospitalized. By Blake Nicholson. UPCOMING: 450 words.
GAS PLANT EXPANSION
BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota regulators have approved the $150 million expansion of the Roosevelt Gas Plant in McKenzie County, though they ordered the Kinder Morgan company to minimize noise and light pollution for neighboring landowners. The plant processes 50 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. A Kinder Morgan subsidiary plans to build another plant at the same location to process another 150 million cubic feet per day. It’s to begin operating in a year. SENT: 130 words. UPCOMING: 250 words.
