State Profile

North Dakota is positioned for a leaner, more efficient state government, as state lawmakers in April passed a $4.3 billion general fund budget for 2017-19 that represents a more than 28 percent decrease, from $14.2 billion to $13.6 billion, from the current two-year budget cycle, which ends June 30. The budget contains more than $1.3 billion in local property tax relief, including $161 million in state funding to cover the cost of federally and state-mandated county social services and reduce local property tax rates.
