Legislative hearing


Kristian Sorum, who farms near Flaxton, N.D., in northwestern North Dakota, speaks on Friday, Jan. 14, 2011, at a North Dakota Senate Natural Resources Committee hearing on legislation that would require a percentage of an oil well's royalty payments to be paid to landowners who own property within the oil well's drilling space. Sorum says landowners often do not have the right to payments from oil production on their land, but they must put up with the problems caused by oil drilling. (AP Photo/Dale Wetzel)
