AG: School districts stuck with budgeting mistakes

Posted: Updated:

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's attorney general says school districts are stuck with any budgeting mistakes they make and fail to correct before Oct. 10 of each year.

Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says in a legal opinion that school districts can't amend their budgets when a statutory deadline prohibits it, even if they are making the amendment because of a clerical or human error.

The opinion was written in response to a request made by McLean County State's Attorney Ladd Erickson.
