Assessing the Session: Longtime Senator Happy


A longtime state senator says he’s happy with the just-ended legislative session.
David Hogue has represented District 38 for six sessions and says there was good collaboration this year.

He says the session was helped by the economy.
Two years ago, oil revenues were down and legislators were looking for across the board cuts in state departments.
This session ended with agreement on judicial branch spending, major water projects in the Fargo and Minot areas, behavioral health issues, and a plan to build a Theodore Roosevelt Museum and Library in Medora.

Hogue says he would have liked to see the museum money come from the state’s Legacy Fund.

(Sen. David Hogue, (R) District 38) “I thought that was a great legacy project for the legacy fund. To me, that’s a perfect type of project. It benefits multiple generations, it’s in our top tourist destination I would say in North Dakota.”

Still, he says he supports the plan that calls for the state to provide $50-million, if and when $100-million is raised privately to build the museum.
