Posted 12/14/09 (Mon)

On December 3, Governor John Hoeven authorized $30 million for the expansion of the North Dakota Heritage Center. In his 2009-11 Budget Recommendation the Governor provided for $18 million for the project from the general fund and $12 million from special funds to be raised by the agency, for construction of an addition to the Heritage Center.

"This is a good start as we proceed to the legislative session," says Merl Paaverud, director of the State Historical Society of North Dakota "The important thing to remember is that the project was included in the budget. Our work must continue to secure funding to complete the Master Plan for expansion of the North Dakota Heritage Center."
