North Dakota sues Biden over oil and gas drilling

North Dakota is suing the Biden administration over its efforts to destroy the fossil fuel industry that is critical to the state’s economy.

The state’s Republican attorney general, Wayne Stenehjem, said that Biden’s policy of pausing oil and gas drilling on federal lands has cost North Dakota $80 million so far.

State could lose billions

North Dakota, the second-largest oil producing state in the nation, is demanding that two cancelled auctions be reinstated, and that the White House desist from blocking any more sales.

The losses could run up to the “billions” if they are not stopped, the state complained in the United States District Court for the District of North Dakota Western Division.

“Oil and gas production are central to North Dakota’s economy and the welfare of its citizens, responsible for 54% of the value of the State’s economy, generating approximately 76% of the State’s tax revenue and creating approximately 66,000 good-paying jobs in the State,” the lawsuit reads.

The lawsuits comes weeks after a Louisiana judge issued a nationwide injunction against the White House’s policy, which Biden enacted shortly after taking office as part of his climate change agenda.

Republicans from 21 states have similarly challenged Biden’s decision to kill off the Keystone XL pipeline, and the company that owns the cancelled pipeline has sued the White House for $15 billion in damages.

North Dakota fights to defend its resources from crooked feds

Critics say that Biden’s energy policy has cost thousands of jobs while leaving America less secure and more reliant on foreign nations for fuel.

But for North Dakotans, Biden’s move is personal as well — a usurpation of the state’s resources that will harm residents and ultimately the whole country.

North Dakota Republican senator Kevin Cramer said that the pause “increases federal and state budget shortfalls, hampers state and private mineral owners’ rights, and makes the United States less energy independent and more reliant on foreign producers.”

And attorney general Stenehjem said that he welcomes Louisiana’s decision, and that he will continue to pressure “the Federal government to do the right thing for our state.”

He added that he will fight to protect North Dakota’s economy, its jobs, and its “rights to control its own natural resources.”
