Minot Area Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement.
The 2019 Legislative Session is fast approaching and the Minot Area Chamber of Commerce is looking to track several bills that could impact the area. The Prairie Dog Bill, introduced by Sen. Rich Wardner of Dickinson, would fund infrastructure projects with oil and gas tax revenue in areas outside of North Dakota’s oil patch.
The Legislature will also be discussing potential changes to the Legacy Fund that could help in funding local projects. Lawmakers will be discussing the Governor’s proposal to allow military pay and pension to be tax exempt. As with most sessions, the Minot Chamber will monitor K – 12 funding, ND State Fair funding, support for our university and other issues related to our area.
You can keep updated with what’s happening in Bismarck and get answers first hand by attending the Saturday Legislative sessions.
The sessions will begin Saturday, Jan. 12 at the ND State Fair Center Norse Room at 9 a.m. During the forum, those attending can provide a handwritten question to the moderator who will ask the legislators attending.
