$1.6B: ND budget surplus continues to zoom
BISMARCK (AP) -- New estimates put North Dakota's budget surplus at a staggering $1.6 billion.
In July the state's budget surplus was estimated at $850 million. That doesn't count $1.1 billion in state reserve funds that have restrictions on how they can be spent.
Gov. Jack Dalrymple credits explosive growth in sales tax revenues for much of the increase.
