NORTH DAKOTA-WASTING GAS
BISMARCK, N.D. _ North Dakota oil drillers are falling far short of the state’s goals to limit the burning of excess natural gas at well heads, five years after the state adopted the rules to reduce the wasteful and environmentally harmful practice. The industry has spent billions of dollars on infrastructure but is at least two years from catching up, and regulators are projecting that the state’s increasing gas production will still outstrip that new capacity.

AROUND THE STATE:
MOSBY, MO. _ Over the past three decades, federal and local governments have poured more than $5 billion into buying tens of thousands of properties vulnerable to flooding across the country, according to an Associated Press analysis of data from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The AP analysis shows those buyouts have been getting more expensive, with many of the costliest coming in the last decade after strong storms pounded heavily populated coastal states such as Texas, New York and New Jersey. This year’s record flooding in the Midwest could add even more buyouts to the queue. By David A. Lieb. SENT: 1,425 words, photos.
