The bill that dealt with NDSU Research and Extension has been contentious in the area of the Extension Service Soil Conservation committee because the House saw an administrative position as too rich for the function. They removed $213,000 for that and the conference committee put back all but $21,788 of that just minutes ago this Friday afternoon. The Senate had taken out over $7 million from their budget previous to going to the House. The House took out another $300,000 and it ended up today as $290,00 of that being taken out.
The 70 day session is out the window with this being Day 73. Most now are saying next Wednesday or Thursday. Enjoy your weekend.
