Amendments made in the North Dakota bonding bill Friday removed funding for the Ag Products Development Center on North Dakota State University campus. The bill passed in the House on Monday. Now North Dakota Grain Growers Association Executive Director Dan Wogsland says the bill will likely go to conference committee. “The Senate must not concur and we’re confident they won’t. I expect to see a conference committee meeting this week.” Wogsland says the association will work hard to make sure the conference committee adds the funding back into the bill. The Ag Products Development Center would replace Harris Hall, bringing together meat sciences, cereal sciences and the Northern Crops Institute in one building.
