NDSU's Bresciani: Budget outlook still 'gloomy' - Patrick Springer, In Forum

North Dakota State University President Dean Bresciani warned an alumni group that the budget outlook for 2017-19 remains gloomy and said administrators are girding for a budget cut in the range of 20 percent. But Bresciani said there still is confusion in the Capitol about which of two gubernatorial budget proposals—or even which budget year—will serve as the baseline to shape the 2017-19 spending plan. "I think the mood certainly is sobering there," he said. Legislators continue to be "less than optimistic" about the revenue forecast, due March 9, that will guide the size of the budget.
