With all that is happening in western North Dakota, some cities in the heart of the oil boom have begun to ask the state for more help dealing with the challenges meeting the needs of their communities. Specifically, with the North Dakota Legislature meeting biennially for 80 days in odd numbered years, some have wondered if they can afford to wait until 2015 to get all the dollars needed to deal with the many aspects in various sectors affected by growing population and traffic by the ever exploding growth in the oil industry.
