ND Human Services Budget Breaks a Record

Posted: Updated:

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The next two-year budget for North Dakota's Department of Human Services has broken a billion-dollar barrier. The state House and Senate have approved a Human Services budget that calls for state general fund spending of just under $1.2 billion - a record state agency budget. 

Human Services is the largest state agency, with more than 2,100 employees. Total spending for the department including federal money is estimated at just under $3 million over the next two years. 

The Human Services budget bill now goes to Governor Jack Dalrymple for his signature.
