Pore Space F.A.Q

 

 

 

Your generous donation is allowing the NWLA Board to proceed with legal action against the State of ND asking the Pore Space legislation be declared unconstitutional, void, and of no effect. Braaten Law Firm is the legal counsel and has agreed to discounted rates; however, many hours have been, and will continue to be spent working on this issue. Monetary donations are used not only for legal counsel, but also marketing materials, educational outreach, and travel costs for the NWLA volunteer board.

Thank you for your support!

    I believe the US Supreme Court recently improved our chances by holding in Knick v. Township of Scott, that the owner of a farm with several graves on it could sue the township for an unconstitutional taking of private property, when the township adopted an ordinance requiring anyone with a cemetery on their land to open it to the public during the day without paying the owner for it.

    House members voted 66-24 Wednesday, April 17, to approve Senate Bill 2344, which seeks to clear up issues related to pore space, which describes the cavity or void in underground rock formations. “We think that with this bill, we have the opportunity to protect surface owners as well as the operators,” said Rep. George Keiser, R-Bismarck.
