Rules. In 2009, little action was taken at the federal level, beyond voluntary initiatives, to implement greenhouse gas (GHG) management strategies ensuring that GHG emissions are accounted for and controlled. However, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has changed its stance and is initiating actions to monitor and control GHG emissions.
North Dakota has not implemented any regulatory programs for GHG management, other than establishing participating in regional programs. Administration and enforcement. The North Dakota Governor's Office and North Dakota Department of Commerce represent the state's interests in regional GHG management and climate change initiatives.
