BISMARCK (AP) — North Dakota Republican lawmakers are promoting the Legislature's tax cuts and spending on roads and public works.
Republicans are holding news conferences in eight North Dakota cities on Tuesday to talk about the work of the 2011 Legislature. Lawmakers finished their work last Thursday.
Lawmakers cut income taxes for individuals and corporations, and set aside money for property tax reductions. They approved money for roads, flood control and a water supply project in northwestern North Dakota.
Democrats say they backed some of the Legislature's initiatives, but they tried to promote other priorities.
They opposed the corporate tax cuts and say the money could have been used to improve health insurance coverage for children and prenatal care for pregnant women.
