Legislators near late-night compromise for property tax relief, K-12 funding

Email

BISMARCK - Legislators were close to reaching a compromise after 11 p.m. Friday on their final day of the session to fund North Dakota's K-12 schools and provide property tax relief.

The issues hung in limbo throughout the day after House lawmakers defeated a bill early Friday, reversing the previous day's passage of Gov. Jack Dalrymple's proposal to increase state aid to K-12 school districts while providing about $714 million in property tax relief.
