As North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple works on a budget for the next biennium, he’ll have to assume that less money will be going into state coffers because of falling oil prices. When the Office of Management and Budget’s advisory committee convened last summer, it assumed the price of a barrel of North Dakota oil would be $90 at the start of the next biennium. Late last month, when the committee met, it concluded that it would be safer to assume $74, said OMB director Pam Sharp. Oil taxes, based on the value of oil, accounted for more than a quarter of taxes collected by the state in fiscal year 2014.
The first-term incumbent appeared to be sailing to victory Tuesday in his bid for re-election to North Dakota’s sole seat in the U.S. House. As of 11 p.m., Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer was in the lead with 382 of 427 precincts reporting.
An email a stranger sent to the North Dakota University System’s computer security officer on the morning of Feb. 7 was the first sign that there had been a security breach. The stranger had received a warning from Google the night before saying that an NDUS server had tried to hijack his account. It so happens that server, physically located at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, contained the private information of more than 290,000 students and employees. News of the attack quickly spread as NDUS warned potential victims of the security breach. Later it would fire three employees, including the security officer. But a security audit and other documents obtained by The Forum shows that the problems went beyond just those employees to a flawed corporate culture in which security did not appear to be a top concern.
