Mandan, N. Dakota – N. Dakota Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier confirmed, it costs $500K per day, County has spent $3M to date and state nearly $6M involving #NoDAPL protests. The $5.8M earmarked funding for providing law enforcement services during the DAPL protests has nearly ran out, according to the N. Dakota Department of Emergency Services. The funding was a loan approved by the state’s Emergency Commission and must be repaid to the state-owned Bank of N. Dakota with interest. What does it mean, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana, S. Dakota, Nebraska and Wyoming will most likely not get full reimbursement for sending law enforcement officers to assist the MCSO during #NoDAPL protests once the funding runs out.
