TODAY'S THOUGHT

Every day is a battle. Will you rest in God's sovereignty, wisdom and grace, or give way to fear because you can't figure everything out?

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An economic consultancy hired by the North Dakota Legislature predicts slightly higher oil prices but lower production over the next two-year budget cycle than a state forecast. The forecast presented today by IHS Markit to lawmakers estimated general fund revenues from major tax collection categories at $2.9 billion. That's down 7.5 percent from revenue forecast presented Monday by state budget analysts and Moody's Analytics.

    The Legislature's consultancy predicted oil production to slip from the current 1.4 million barrels daily to 1.3 million barrels at the end of the budget cycle. The forecast presented Monday expects production to rise by about 400,000 barrels over the budget period.

    Lawmakers will consider both forecasts to set the final numbers Thursday when they begin finishing their work on the state's 2019-2021 spending plan.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Federal officials who permitted the Dakota Access oil pipeline are turning over some documents sought by American Indian tribes suing over the project. But the Army Corps of Engineers argued in a new court filing Monday that a request for dozens more records is vague and overly broad and should be rejected by a federal judge.

    The developer of the pipeline that's moving North Dakota oil to Illinois also wants the judge to deny the request, saying it's meritless and will delay a legal battle that's already lingered nearly three years.

    The records relate to a court-ordered Corps study on the pipeline's impacts on tribes. The Corps determined the pipeline doesn't unfairly impact minorities. The tribes dispute the findings and allege the Corps is withholding documents that could bolster their case.

     DUNN CENTER, N.D. (AP) - An equipment problem is being blamed for the spill of about 310 barrels of saltwater at an oil and gas well in Dunn County. The state Oil and Gas Division says Bruin E&P Operating reported Monday that the brine had spilled the previous day at a well about 15 miles north of Dunn Center, due to a valve or piping connection leak. All of the spilled saltwater was contained on site and recovered.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A man is facing criminal charges after police say he entered a home in Grand Forks, barricaded himself in the basement and started a fire. Authorities say the man was armed with a knife when he entered the residence Saturday, threatened its residents and made his way to the basement. A short time later smoke detectors went off. Residents left the home and police found the man barricaded in the basement where he had started a fire. KFGO reports Grand Forks Regional SWAT officers were on scene and negotiators began talking with the 33-year-old man who was arrested several hours later.
