(Reuters) - North Dakota law enforcement will not make spot checks on vehicles headed to the camp where activists are protesting a controversial pipeline project, the governor's office said on Wednesday.
The move suggests that the state will not be seeking to actively enforce an emergency order issued Monday by Governor Jack Dalrymple for the camp's evacuation due to a coming blizzard.
Local law enforcement officials had said Tuesday that they planned a blockade of the camp - but they and state officials later retreated from that stance to say they would only check vehicles for certain prohibited supplies like propane, and potentially issue fines.
