North Dakota filed a lawsuit this Wednesday against the Biden administration over its suspension of new oil and gas leases on federal land and water, claiming it will lose the state more than $4 billion in revenue and keep more than half a billion barrels of oil in the ground. 

President Joe Biden ordered the suspension in his first days in office as part of his climate change agenda.
