BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple is asking agencies for their spending plans for the state's next budget cycle.
Dalrymple is slated to address agency directors Wednesday afternoon at the state Capitol. North Dakota departments will use the guidelines in preparing their spending plans for the next two-year budget cycle. Dalrymple will use the proposals to write his own spending recommendations to the Legislature when lawmakers meet in January. The state's current two-year budget including federal aid is $14 billion.
It includes $6.9 billion in state general fund spending.
