GNDC statement on Governor Burgum’s Executive Budget Proposal
GNDC released the following statement today regarding Governor Burgum’s Executive Budget Address on December 6 at 9:55 AM.
“In response to the Governor’s budget proposal, the Greater North Dakota Chamber was happy to see priority alignment in areas specific to infrastructure investment and workforce development while being responsive to taxpayers. We heard items addressed that are near and dear to our members including automation and childcare. We expect to see solutions explored beginning in January,” stated Arik Spencer, GNDC CEO and President. “This session is the first where the Legacy Fund earnings and state revenues will play heavy into conversations – we want to keep a future focus. GNDC looks forward to working with new and returning legislators to ensure the needs of our members are being advanced in the budget for the coming biennium.”
