ND Supreme Court says Office of Management and Budget’s appropriations bill is invalidated

(BISMARCK) -- The North Dakota Supreme Court says North Dakota Senate Bill 2015, the appropriations bill for the Office of Management and Budget, has been invalidated.

Governor Doug Burgum issued a statement following the decision by the state's highest court:

“As acknowledged by the Supreme Court, this decision has far-reaching consequences that will require a special session of the Legislative Assembly to enact the nearly 70 sections of the OMB bill that have now been voided. We’re arranging meetings with legislative leaders today to determine the best course of action for the Legislature to address the business at hand in the most efficient and effective manner possible.”
