House and Senate Appropriations Committees will look at two spending bills for each agency.
One bill is the proposal from Governor Dalrymple’s executive budget – the other represents a Legislative budget.
"I've been trying to getb this through for years," said House Majority Leader Al Carlson (R-Fargo). "I think it's the right way to budget."
Carlson said the Legislature needs to be more involved in the budget building process.
