New North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum speaks with cabinet members on his first day of office Thursday morning at the state Captiol in Bismarck. There are 17 cabinet positions with Burgum replacing a few of the postions with new members or with people filling in for the interim during the transition from former Gov. Jack […]

We sat down with our new Governor last week to hear his plans for his session.

Governor Doug Burgum said he told his team that everything is on the table when it comes to Governor Dalrymple’s recent budget.
He said they are going to scrub the budget from the top to bottom.
He did say there will definitely be a cut in higher education funding but raising tuition goes through the Board of Higher Education and the North Dakota Higher Education system.
What he is focused on is making sure we provide better education as a state.
He said we have to reinvent institution so students are ready when they hit the workforce.

“all that debt, go to college, you still don’t have skills to work in the field you pursue, we’re stuck in a paradigm K-12, and higher-ed when in fact we need to live in a world where education has to start early” says Burgum

He added we want to make sure we’ve got, great education at the right affordable price.
