North Dakota leaders unveil oil tax-sharing deal with tribe

North Dakota Republican legislative leaders unveiled a bill Thursday that aims to stop a longstanding disagreement over shared revenues on an oil-rich American Indian reservation in the state. The bill sponsored by GOP Sen. Jordan Kannianen and the party's Senate and House majority leaders reworks a tax-sharing agreement that favors the Three Affiliated Tribes on new wells drilled on the Fort Berthold Reservation, which accounts for about a fifth of North Dakota's more than 1.3 million barrel-a-day oil production.
