NWLA Executive Director, Amy, spent two days touring the city of Minot with the Energy Development and Transmission Committee. This committee heard testimony from City of Minot officials and various Minot professionals in favor of Minot remaining a HUB city. Minot is considered the Gateway to the Bakken, as many major oil companies have headquarters in Minot. Williston is another city the committee toured for consideration in continuing their HUB city funding. The next committee hearing will be in Bismarck at the end of January, this hearing will be geared to wind development and the taxation of wind.
