Governor Jack Dalrymple presented his budget and revenue proposal to the state legislature earlier this week. While it was generally well-received by his own party, some had reservations. My concern is that the state expenditure for infrastructure in oil country could have only short-lived benefits; if the oil i tapped in a few years, we'll be left with a major white elephant in the form of paved roads to nowhere. In addition, the governor is not realistic in calling the infrastructure a "one-time investment". Roads require upkeep, especially when trucks and heavy equipment are involved.

What are your thoughts on the Governor's proposal? Does it work for North Dakota? What would you do differently?
