WASHINGTON — One down, one to go, area farm group leaders say. As expected, the U.S. Senate on June 10 approved 66-27 a new federal farm bill. That clears the way for the U.S. House to take up its own version of the legislation, expected this week. But farm group leaders worry that the farm bill — the centerpiece of U.S. food and agricultural policy — faces a greater challenge in the House than it did in the Senate.

FARGO – A bill passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday would block a proposal to charge a border-crossing fee for Canadians entering the United States – a fee that one Fargo-Moorhead tourism official said would encourage Canadians who shop here to stay home.
GRAND FORKS — The chairman of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee announced Thursday that he did not expect the Senate-passed Marketplace Fairness Act to pass the House, which one advocacy group celebrated as effectively killing the bill that Sen.

WASHINGTON — Across-the-board bumps to flood insurance nationwide expected to kick in over the next few years might not come as soon as planned. Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., announced Thursday that the House passed a funding bill that essentially calls a “timeout” on a few scheduled changes to the National Flood Insurance Program, which he said will cause “extreme pain” for homeowners if Congress can’t stop them.
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.
WASHINGTON — Senate Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., said Saturday that she plans to hold a markup of a new farm bill in May, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., signaled that he intends to bring it to the Senate floor that same month.
BISMARCK — Rep. Bob Skarphol said late Wednesday a bill to provide $1.1 billion to western North Dakota communities will deliver ample funding to address infrastructure and other needs, but will not provide the long-term help the bill was intended to do.
BISMARCK — North Dakota University System leaders are calling on lawmakers to restore the state’s higher education budget in the wake of new amendments that could trim millions of dollars from what campuses will receive over the next two years.
