BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A new forecast of North Dakota's tax collections predicts a $1 billion budget surplus in July, continuing a robust financial trend that has defied a national recession and budget deficits in most states.

For the next week, WDAY 6 News, as part of a Forum Communications special project, takes a look at life in the oil patch: From a rare look at life on a rig to the state's new millionaires.
