Infrastructure bonding proposals are being considered in the North Dakota Legislature. Representative Jared Hagert says there are a multitude of different proposals. “The governor’s proposal is at $1.25 billion, there’s another proposal for $2 billion and one that started in the House at $1.1 billion, but is currently at $800 million. There’s lots of issues being worked out and it’s cliche, but we don’t know what we don’t know.” Hagert says the majority of legislature recognizes the need for improved infrastructure in rural North Dakota. Hagert is a member of the House Transportation Committee, but the committee hasn’t reviewed anything on the subject yet. “We all are keeping tabs on it. As we move forward in understanding different proposals, there may be an opportunity to address some in committee settings.”
