Bismarck, ND – Governor Doug Burgum is trying to have his salary removed from the state budget. After campaign promises to do the job for free, he is currently taking a salary. But his office says he has put forward an amendment to the Governor’s Budget Bill that would eliminate it.

That amendment has not yet been accepted and would still need to clear the house and senate. If it is not approved, Gov. Burgum said he plans to donate his salary to charity.
