Theodore Roosevelt National Park is holding public meetings on its draft plan to reduce the park’s elk herd, while North Dakota wildlife officials continue lobbying for a new option. State lawmakers also have entered into the debate.
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is promising an aggressive effort to combat the worst financial crisis in seven decades, unveiling a program that could mobilize well over $1 trillion in public and private support to get the frozen credit markets functioning again.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Tuesday the new plan would bring the full force of the federal government to bear in a partnership with the private sector.
BISMARCK — A group hoping to rein in state and local government budgets with an initiated constitutional amendment said this morning that they’re dropping their nearly year-long effort in part because North Dakota voters rejected two state tax measures in November.
There’s a lot to like in the governor’s budget, lawmakers and others said, but they have lots of questions and some worries about what would happen in future years if they were to adopt major parts of it as proposed.

North Dakota Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm is encouraging Jamestown residents to attend a free open enrollment event for assistance in switching or enrolling in a Medicare prescription drug plan.
The event will be held 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 9 at the Gladstone Inn, 111 Second St. N.E., Jamestown.
“Insurance Department staff will be on hand to help consumers choose a plan that suits their needs,” Hamm said. “There are significant changes in the 2009 plans, so it’s important for consumers to review their options, even if they’re happy with the plan they had in 2008.”
Urgently shifting course, the Bush administration is abandoning the centerpiece of its massive $700 billion economic rescue plan and exploring new ways to shore up not only banks but credit-card, auto-loan and other huge nonbank businesses. Democrats are pressing hard to include a multibillion-dollar bailout for faltering automakers, too — over administration objections.

BISMARCK — Democratic-NPL governor candidate Sen. Tim Mathern this morning proposed property and income tax cuts and increased aid to local governments that he said would total $1 billion every two years.
Only a few property owners in the area bordering the 2007 U.S. Highway 281 reconstruction project showed up at City Hall Thursday to add input to plans for enhancing the roadway corridor.
The city has received a $125,000 Transportation Enhancement grant from the North Dakota Department of Transportation to landscape the median areas and along the multi-use path. The city’s share in the cost would be between $70,000 and $80,000.
The proposal to fund repairs of Stutsman County with an increase to property taxes assessed to agricultural land and an a county sales tax of 1 percent failed by a vote of 2,429 to 1,289 in unofficial vote counts available after the primary election Tuesday.
The measure would have generated $21 million over a 10-year period for repairs to county roads.
We can all agree that the county paved roads need a lot of work! The county commissioners have come up with a plan to repair most of those roads within three to five years and a method of paying for that work. I have read with interest the letters asking that we wait and come up with either a better plan or a different method of paying for the improvements.

Stutsman County commissioners are asking both rural and city residents to share the burden of county road maintenance and repairs by voting yes on June 10 for Measure 1 — the Sales Tax and Land Tax for Roads. The measure proposes a 1-cent countywide sales tax and a 35-mill increase on agricultural land.
