The bonding bill is done.
It’s $680 million. And its big projects are the F-M Diversion, the Mouse River Flood Control Project, and a new agriculture building at NDSU.
The $680 million was earlier passed by the House. The Senate initially raised it to $1.1 billion. But because of new federal COVID relief money, and better than expected earnings from the state’s Legacy Fund, the Senate reduced it to the House level, thereby avoiding a conference committee, and sending it to Governor Burgum.
It passed the Senate unanimously.
