North Dakota's Senate Majority Leader says there is no need to call a special legislative to deal with issues in the west caused by oil development.
Democratic legislative leaders have been calling for a special session. But Sen. Rich Wardner (R-Dickinson) says now is not the time.
"When we get into the regular session, we will be able to do a better job of taking care of the western counties in the oil impact area," said Wardner. "If we go into a special session, they will not get what they want."
