An environmental group employee holds a used filter sock in BismarckBy Ernest Scheyder WILLISTON, N.D. (Reuters) - North Dakota's oil industry is pushing to change the state's radioactive waste disposal laws as part of a broad effort to conserve cash as oil prices tumble. The waste, which becomes slightly radioactive as part of the hydraulic fracturing process that churns up isotopes locked underground, must be trucked out of state. The most common form of radioactive waste is a filter sock, a mesh tube resembling a sandbag through which fracking water is pumped before it's injected back into the earth.

FILE - In this April 12, 2013 file photo, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Administrator Michelle Leonhart testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. Leonhart says the agency never installed surveillance cameras to photograph vehicle license plates near gun shows. The idea was proposed in an internal DEA email as part of an effort to investigate gun-trafficking crimes. Leonhart told The Associated Press in a statement Wednesday that the plan was only a suggestion, never authorized by her agency and never put into action. The AP also learned the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives didn’t authorize or approve the license plate surveillance plan. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — The Drug Enforcement Administration abandoned an internal proposal to use surveillance cameras for photographing vehicle license plates near gun shows in the United States to investigate gun-trafficking, the agency's chief said Wednesday.

Boeing profits are up after a record year of commercial aircraft ordersUS aerospace giant Boeing Wednesday reported higher quarterly profits, capping a record year of commercial aircraft orders and deliveries. The strong earnings came on the heels of a Boeing announcement in December that it delivered a record 723 jets, surpassing a previous record of 648, on rising demand from newer airlines in emerging markets and more seasoned companies replacing their fleets. In December, Boeing raised its dividend and announced a new $12 billion share repurchase program. "Strong operating performance in the final quarter of 2014 propelled us to some of our best-ever results and sealed a fifth consecutive year of core operating earnings growth," said Boeing chief executive Jim McNerney.
