More cheap and abundant energy being offered from N. Dakota and of course our green politicians try to block our ability to purchase it. Yet another attack on low-income families by the radical left.

If North Dakota wants to stay rooted in the 20th Century, that is their prerogative. That they feel they can tell us to do the same is beyond ridiculous. How about if they worry about their side of the Red River and we worry about our side?

twspt7, how about you and your authoritarian minded ilk allow the rest of us to choose whether or not we want to purchase coal produced electricity or not. This is a clear violation of the interstate commerce clause.

North Dakota has been undergoing an economic boom due to its production of more oil per year than any other state except Alaska and Texas. Why the North Dakota Attorney General has to bring suit against MN to help another ND industry is beyond me. By the way, the NDAG used to and maybe still does accept political contributions from out-of-state corporations which is against ND law. There's an article in the North Dakota Law Review by Bruce Schoenwald all about it.

The authors of the MN NGEA had no scientific basis for the law. There were precisely ZERO scientific studies to suggest that mandating wind turbines would have ANY benefit of any kind for MN. Have fun defending that. Of course MN tax payers are paying to defend this incredibly horrible law. This Minnesotan hopes ND is successful in overturning the NGEA.
