Strong Support for Bill to Transfer County Social Service Costs to State

The first hearing was held Wednesday on the county social service funding bill to transfer the cost of county social services to the State of North Dakota. This bill provides an exit for the existing 12% property tax buy down and delivers real, permanent property tax reform. The bill had strong legislative support, county support along with support from the cities, farm bureau and NDREC. Governor Burgum also included this idea in his budget as the mechanism to deliver property tax relief to North Dakotan's.
