Two Bills Regarding CO2 Pipeline Under Consideration in ND


(Bismarck, ND) — Two bills related to a proposed CO2 pipeline are being considered in the state Senate. Senator Jeff Magrum introduced both bills, which focus on the use of eminent domain. One of the bills would allow eminent domain to be used to put in a pipeline as long as 85-percent of land owners approve the move. The proposed pipeline would cross Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota, and North Dakota, where the CO2 would be released under the Bakken. Hearings for both bills are scheduled for January 27th.
