(Bismarck, ND) -- The state hospital in Jamestown is asking for funding to cover demolition costs for buildings on its campus.

The two-million in funds would be used to tear down unused buildings, including the milk barn, pig barn, and water treatment buildings.

Demolition of other parts of the campus has already been approved, including tunnels that connect the buildings.

The legislative committee hasn't acted on the bill to amend the funding request.
