NDSU Extension Service faces $4.3 million in proposed state budget…

The North Dakota State University Extension Service faces a more than 14 percent budget cut for the coming biennium. Both chambers of the state Legislature propose cutting Extension Service funding this legislative session, which is contained in Senate Bill 2020. The bill is still in conference committee, so no final decisions have been made. However, current legislation has about $4.3 million less than the service’s 2015-17 budget, said Chris Boerboom, director of the NDSU Extension Service.
