Senate returns some funding for Oil Patch


BISMARCK -- Some of the funding for western North Dakota counties that was stripped out of a bill last week, and drew heat from many, has now been restored.

Senate lawmakers adopted changes Monday to House Bill 1358 that now will provide $1.1 billion to oil-impacted counties.

The measure passed unanimously and will go to a conference committee where the House and Senate will have to find consensus on a funding plan. The House version of the bill had $1.2 billion.
