DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - Sen. Kent Conrad says farmers and

ranchers with flooded land in the Devils Lake region can once again

apply for relief under the Wetlands Reserve Program.

The North Dakota Democrat says the federal Agriculture

Department had suspended the issuing of contracts under the program

until a technical issue involving title insurance companies was

resolved.

Conrad says the Wetlands Reserve Program is not a solution for

all landowners but provides another option.
