     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Mandan woman has been sentenced to probation and restitution for embezzling from the state Transportation Department. Authorities say 62-year-old Dorma Steier embezzled more than $28,000 from June 2016 to December 2017 while working for the department's Motor Vehicle Division. She was fired in December 2017 after working nearly two decades for the agency.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that Steier was given a three-year suspended prison sentence. A restitution hearing is scheduled February 7th. Prosecutors plan to seek an amount to cover the embezzled money plus investigative costs incurred by the state.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Legislature expects oil tax collections to be almost $600 million lower than what Gov. Doug Burgum had assumed in crafting his two-year spending blueprint. Members of the North Dakota House and Senate's appropriations committees on Wednesday agreed on a starting point for state government's 2019-2020 budget. Republican and Democratic legislative leaders say their blueprint better reflects the state's economy at present.

Buffalo is the first female Native American Democrat elected to the state Legislature. She says the training would be made available across jurisdictions, including tribal law enforcement.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Doug Burgum says construction of a Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in Medora would elevate North Dakota's reputation around the globe. Burgum has proposed dedicating $50 million of state money for the library being developed by a private foundation. He pitched the idea Wednesday to a House appropriations subcommittee. Some lawmakers say they'd like to see some solid private money commitments before they devote state money.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota House has endorsed a bill that raises the age of children who can be held responsible for breaking the law. State law now says children under the age of 7 are presumed incapable of committing a crime. The House voted 88-5 today to raise the age to 10. The measure was motivated by an interim legislative committee studying criminal justice reform.
