(Bismarck, ND) -- North Dakota's Congressional delegation wants hours of operation at the U.S.-Canadian border restored to pre-pandemic levels.
Governor Doug Burgum says reduced hours at several North Dakota port crossings hurt the state. U.S. Senators Kevin Cramer and John Hoeven and Congressman Kelly Armstrong recently sent a letter to Customs Commissioner Chris Magnus to request a return to pre-pandemic hours at ports.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has rejected previous requests, citing a reduced traffic level at crossings.
