BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s Republican-led Legislature has convened special session to begin fixing a budget mess. Lawmakers quickly got to work on 14 bills that would resurrect provisions of a major budget bill struck down last month by the state Supreme Court. Republican Gov. Doug Burgum has urged the Legislature take up unrelated proposals, such as expanded income tax relief and more funding for infrastructure projects and a tourism attraction grant program. Republican legislative majority leaders have eyed a three- to five-day session this week.
