BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Republican legislative leaders say a massive $1.1 billion bonding package aimed largely at financing infrastructure projects across North Dakota is being withdrawn and will be replaced by a far less costly proposal.

Senate Majority Leader Rich Wardner told The Associated Press the bill would be scrubbed. A new proposal that would be at least $300 million less will be coming from the House.

Wardner and House Majority Leader Chet Pollert said priority will be given only to water and flood-control projects.

The original Senate proposal had not been publicly debated but it has been the subject of several behind-the-scenes intraparty negotiations.
