Got any snow? SB 2183 just passed on the House floor and should be able to become law upon the Governor signing it within a few days. It allows tribal governments, cities, counties and townships to apply to the Adjutant General (of the North Dakota National Guard) for grants to help with the cost of excessive snow removal. Up to 60% of any cost over 150% of your lowest four-year average in the last five years may be awarded. You could call that your Olympic historical average. That may seem complicated, though it made sense after I read it a couple of times. However, given the intelligence of my readers, I am pretty sure you got it the first time. It draws from a total pot of $20 million with $15 million for the three-month period this early winter from October 1, 2022, to December 31, 2022. Use those three months to get your historical average for that grant. That will help as it hit us pretty hard. Then there is whatever remaining available for the seven-month period of October 1, 2022, through April 30, 2023. Use those seven months to get your historical average for that grant.
Today is the 47th Legislative Day and the first day of Spring, by the way.
