A House committee has added $8.1 million to the budget bill for the National Guard.
The money is designed to provide financial help for townships in non-oil producing counties for snow removal and flooding.
Rep.Don Vigesaa (R-Cooperstown) said the counties need the help.
"They had 80-100 inches of snow," Vigesaa said. "Now their roads are washing out."
Vigesaa said the counties are now dealing with overland flooding, affecting county and township roads.
