BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Some lawmakers on the North Dakota Legislature's interim higher
education committee don't agree. Bismarck Rep. Mark Dosch says the
board's new long-term finance plan isn't innovative.
Higher education officials briefed the committee on Tuesday
about their review of budget methods. Some lawmakers wanted a fresh
look at them because they believe state spending on colleges is
growing too quickly.
Board of Higher Education President Richie Smith says North
Dakota's higher education finance system is the envy of the nation.
