BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- Participants in town hall meetings held across North Dakota overwhelmingly say they want the state to invest more in infrastructure, and housing easily tops the list of needs.

U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development State Director Jasper Schneider says more than 600 people attended the 14 meetings held since last October as part of what is called the "North Dakota 2.0" initiative to help decision-makers chart a better future for the state.

Results were released Tuesday. The Forum newspaper first reported them after meeting with Schneider on Monday. The Forum says the initiative also documented significant support among participants for distributing more of the state's budget surplus to local governments.

The report will be given to legislators, state officials and others, including North Dakota's congressional delegation.
