MANNING — More financial help is on the way for the Killdeer Ambulance Service. Of the $5.8 million in Dunn County’s special projects fund, the county’s commission agreed to commit $300,000 of it to the ambulance service, using money collected from permit fees for crew camps.
FARGO — A new formula to fund North Dakota’s public colleges and universities pulled off a “rare” achievement this spring, Sydney Hull said: earning the support of all 11 campuses for a change that he believes will lead to more transparency and efficiency in the system.
GRAND FORKS — A big change in North Dakota’s education funding system aims to leave more money in taxpayer pockets, but fast-growing school districts such as Grand Forks Public Schools may feel a financial squeeze.
GRAND FORKS — North Dakota’s government will begin picking up a larger percentage of the local education tabs starting Aug. 1. That’s because a new funding formula for K-12 education was passed by the Legislature at the close of session May 4 — resulting in $656 million in property tax relief for residents.
GRAND FORKS — Students at North Dakota’s 11 public colleges and universities could face tuition increases as high as 6.6 percent next fall, even after an “unprecedented” increase in state funding for the University System approved by legislators in the recently completed session.

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.
BISMARCK -- Reversing a vote from Thursday, House lawmakers today defeated Gov. Jack Dalrymple’s proposal to increase state aid to K-12 school districts while providing about $714 million in property tax relief.
Lawmakers spent the first hour of their last legislative day debating House Bill 1319, arguing whether it had the right provisions to provide property tax relief, though the bill’s supporters continually said it was an education funding bill, not a tax relief bill.
Dickinson State University could be home to a new multi-million Theodore Roosevelt shrine. The North Dakota Legislature this week passed a Department of Commerce budget bill that allows a possible $6 million for the construction of a building on the DSU campus that would be called the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library.
