Dalrymple Asks Officials To Maintain Budgets

Posted: Updated:
Governor Jack Dalrymple asks agency leaders to hold even. Dalrymple released his budget guidelines for the 2015-2017 biennium yesterday.

Agencies will start their budget requests with the same guidelines as they did in the last biennium, but those facing demands that go beyond their base budget can request additional funds. Pam Sharp says the goal is to balance ongoing expenditures with ongoing revenues.

"There is more money available in tax revenues in our state right now. Right now, we're running about $145 million ahead of our revenue projections, and we believe we'll end this biennium with about $500 million in the general fund. That will give us the opportunity to make those kinds of one-time investments that we need to do in western North Dakota," says Pam Sharp of the Office of Management and Budget.

The Governor says federal funding has been reduced and the state must invest hundreds of millions of dollars in infrastructure improvements.
