North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum’s budget proposal calls for a 15 percent reduction for NDSU Extension and research. North Dakota Soybean Growers Association Joe Ericson says a Senate subcommittee has rejected these cuts. “A 15 percent budget reduction would result in the loss of 20 Extension positions and that wouldn’t be good. It doesn’t look like they’re going with the Governor’s cut of 15 percent so that’s a win for us.”
