More Federal Dollars for Diversion Project

Posted: Updated:

 While North Dakota lawmakers wrestle over funding for the F-M Red River Diversion Project, there's word that federal dollars set aside for 2013 will be more than expected.

 The Office of Management and Budget had originally allocated $4.5 million. Officials now say the department will likely approve $7.4 million in federal funding; that's about 60% more.

 The increase in funding would not affect the 2014 federal budget. President Barack Obama's budget proposal did not include any funding for the project.
