BISMARCK -- Next week’s special legislative session is expected to cost about $174,000 ($58,000 per day), an official with the North Dakota Legislative Council said Wednesday.

By comparison, the daily average during the 2015 regular session was roughly $80,000, according to Allen Knudson, legislative budget analyst for the council.

“It’s the number of employees they have,” he said of the difference.

Knudson said the number may change, but the initial estimate is 18 staff will be hired for the three-day special session, set to begin Tuesday morning. During the 2015 session, there were approximately 80 staff. Secretaries, bill room staff and others won’t be needed next week.
