North Dakota Senate Agriculture Committee Vice Chair Janne Myrdal says one focus for legislative session is funding for rural infrastructure. “We have hope in the Senate to get funding to townships for the roads.” Bonding issues and the interest in the Legacy funds may take more time to address at the end of the session. Myrdal says state lawmakers will try to wrap up the session by mid-April. “We have to give ourselves eight-to-ten days because we have redistricting and the census coming up. That will require a committee and then, going to special session sometime late this fall. There are a lot of things like that.”
