TODAY'S THOUGHT

Every day is a battle. Will you rest in God's sovereignty, wisdom and grace, or give way to fear because you can't figure everything out?

North Dakota's Senate has killed a measure that would require disclosure of the costs of the travel and security for state officials....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Senate has killed a measure that would require disclosure of the costs of the travel and security for state officials, including the governor, lieutenant governor and their families. The Senate voted 30-15 to kill the House bill on Wednesday.

    Republican Rep. Bill Devlin's bill came after questions from lawmakers and the media about the level of personal security for GOP Gov. Doug Burgum. The governor and the Highway Patrol have claimed the records are protected by state laws that were put on the books following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

    Supporters of the bill argue the information is needed for budget reasons. The Legislative Council, which is the Legislature's research arm, says the records are not protected from disclosure.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Legislature has agreed to raise driver's license fees for the first time in more than 30 years. The House passed the Senate bill 65-25 on Wednesday that raises commercial and non-commercial driver's license fees from $15 to $30. It now goes to Gov. Doug Burgum.
 
     The Legislature last raised the driver's license fees in 1987. Several attempts to raise the fees have been rebuffed by lawmakers, who called it a tax increase. The increased fees are expected to raise $5.5 million in a two-year budget cycle. Non-commercial driver's licenses are valid for six years. Commercial driver's licenses are good for four years.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The possible misallocation of millions of dollars in North Dakota oil money may have affected a third fund. Lawmakers have been dealing with the revelation that about $137 million in state revenue from the oil-rich Fort Berthold reservation did not go to a pair of school funds as it should have. On Wednesday, state engineer Garland Erbele testified that a fund that benefits water projects was shorted, too, by about $125 million.

     DENVER (AP) - Winds gusting to more than 60 mph howled through the Rapid City area as a late winter storm slammed western South Dakota. The National Weather Service reports a gust of 63 mph was recorded Wednesday at Rapid City Regional Airport. The airport was closed because of the approaching storm. That weather system is moving across North Dakota and Minnesota today with strong winds and several inches of snow causing blizzard conditions.

     DENVER (AP) - National Guard troops were using specialized vehicles with tank-like treads to rescue stranded drivers in Colorado in the wake of a massive late-winter storm that's expected to unleash heavy rain and snow on the Midwest plains Thursday.
 
     Wednesday's blizzard cut power to tens of thousands of homes and businesses, caused hundreds of flights to be canceled and wreaked havoc on roadways. A wind gust clocked in at 97 mph in Colorado Springs. The storm also contributed to the death of Corporal Daniel Groves, a Colorado State Patrol officer who was hit and killed by a car as he was helping another driver who slid off Interstate 76 near Denver.
 
     Blizzards, floods and a tornado were reported across more than 25 states, stretching from the northern Rockies to Texas and beyond.
