Try 3 months for $3

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Legislature has endorsed a major spending plan aimed at rebuilding infrastructure projects outside of the state's oil patch.

The Senate voted 46-0 on Thursday for the House bill aimed at providing $250 million in every two-year budget cycle for counties, cities and airports in non-oil producing areas.

The proposal by the Legislature's Republican majority leaders has been called "Operation Prairie Dog."

The legislation assumes that that oil production and prices will hold at the current levels.
