Leader praises the minority

By Staff | May 9, 2009

The 61st Legislative Assembly will soon be history.

With this historic legislative session about finished, I felt compelled to inform everyone how the Democratic minority in the North Dakota Legislative Session was very instrumental in providing an increase in funding to counties, cities and townships. The Democratic House Caucus was tireless in measures to ensure there was sufficient funding in the Department of Transportation budget bill.

Standing together we all found it necessary to assist with the snow removal, rebuilding our roads and bridges and infrastructure and fund the matching fund dollars. We worked hard to convey our message and concerns to the Republican majority. In the end we passed a good bill.

I applaud the work of the Democratic NPL Legislators for standing tall for the people of North Dakota. It was the right thing to do!

Boucher, Rolette, is Minority Leader in the North Dakota House of Representatives.
